December may be a cold month, but the warmth of Anees Ratheestharan's heart has brought smiles to faces across Poland, and brought him the title of SocialErasmus Hero of the month for December 2016!

While on his exchange in Poland with ESN PW, Anees has left his mark in 25 SocialErasmus activities, and has given his all to the project throughout his exchange. Nominated by Hanna Zbikowska for his astounding dedication and passion, we are proud to congratulate Anees, and share his story with you all.


One specific moment is hard to point - Anees went to most of our SocialErasmus events since October 2014 - the last one being Postcard Exchange when we went to the orphanage and made Christmas cards with kids. He definitely showed that language boarders are not boarders at all.

Anees has lived in Poland for a long time and despite that he still goes to SocialErasmus events - more than anybody else :) It shows that being exchange student does not mean only going to parties but also caring about others and getting to know other cultures.
THANK YOU ANEES for leaving your mark with SocialErasmus!


If you also know a SocialErasmus volunteer who deserves fully recognition for his/her actions, don't hesitate to make your nomination.
