Silvia from Spain: Everyday A Girl

By Silvia Fernandez
This is the story of Silvia Fernandez for #EverydayAGirl, as shared via UN Online Volunteers.

This is Silvia from the balcony of her room at home, in Spain. She is a 25-year-old woman, living with her parents and her brother.

        During the summer days, Silvia likes to spend her time reading novels.

        Today is Spain’s General Election and Silvia goes to vote together with her family. After that, they go to have an appetizer before lunch time.

In the late afternoon, when the temperature cools down, Silvia and her parents go for a walk at the beach.

        Silvia and her boyfriend, José Luis, like to spend time together whenever they can. Favourites of theirs include watching series together. 

        Tonight Silvia is cooking dinner with her brother. She is using the culinary machine to make a sauce for the dessert. It will be a brownie with English custard.

         At the end of the day, Silvia likes to relax by playing video games in her room.

Tamica from Australia: Everyday A Girl

This is the story of Tamica Harradine for #EverydayAGirl, as shared by Priyata Pal via UN Online Volunteers.

This is Tamica. She is 20 years old. She is starting her day at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane by taking a trip to the gallery’s garden.

Tamica points out her favourite piece of art; a blood red Chinese sculpture, covered in detailed, intricate patterns. 

Tamica poses by an art installation that doubles as an optical illusion.

Tamica peruses the clocks. They are all set at different speeds, and signify the passage of time during various events that have taken place around the world.

Tamica becomes the photographer; she is taking a photo of a piece of artwork.

Tamica listens to upbeat music that used to be popular many years ago.
