Jenny, what is your role within Oye LENA?
As a dance teacher, I teach the children and teens different genres and rhythms in a passionate and fun way. At the same time, I help and support art classes, gross motor skills, communication and play activities with children with disabilities.
What does it mean to you to work at Oye LENA?
I started at Oye LENA because of the opportunities and experiences it offers working with children and adolescents of different abilities and who need comprehensive support in their learning process so that they can function in daily life.
What do you like most about your job?
What I enjoy most is working with children and young people and learning from them. Every day is an opportunity to learn new things at Oye LENA.
What do you find most difficult about the job?
The hardest thing at Oye LENA is resisting those beautiful smiles from the children.
What would you like to change in the project?
Nothing. Oye LENA is a project that should be taken as an example in many places to provide support to the most deprived and underprivileged in society.
What is your favourite time of the day?
My favourite moment is when the kids complete or finish their activities, you congratulate them and they give you a hug with a smile.
