My Travel Story

by: Nanna Bachmand Jensen Start Date: Nov 11, 2016 - End Date: May 29, 2017
Yes, no doubt that this trip will impact my education and career. I will improve my academic English, I will expand my proffessional network and I will achieve more resources for the following internship.
BUT, more importantly I will grow, as a person. And that is what I am aiming for. 
Unfortunately I have been fighting chronical pain and movement limitations, which resulted in depression. I was badly injured in my back, and needed severe surgeries. The surgeries helped on my nerve pain, and got me out of bed. I even moved to Copenhagen from Aarhus on my own, and I manage. 
I have fought so hard, and I feel that it is time for me to finally live my life again and actually enjoy it, becausse right now, I am not. It almost feels impossible in the surroundings that I find myself in everyday. I constantly experience things that I can't, and it is starting to be too hard. I believe that a big change like this, will help me experience things that I can, even with my pain and limitations, in a new and exciting environment.
Help me fund my trip to Melbourne and help me enjoy myself again. No more sadness and pain. Only big smiles.

    Merry Christmas everyone!
    I hope you all had an amazing Christmas.
    My Christmas was a little different than usual.
    My sister just came home, after brain surgery, so instead a traditional Christmas with pork and potatoes, we grilled Italian pizzas and played Bezzerwizzer.
    How was your Christmas?
