My Travel Story

Hello everyone! 

I am extremely excited to share with you all that I've been given the opportunity to volunteer abroad with SLV on a Mental Health Placement in Bali, Indonesia! On September 2017 I will be embarking on a journey of 4 weeks, volunteering in a psychiatric facility, as well as teaching individuals English, and working with people with specific needs. This is extremely exciting for me because as most of you know, I graduated in December with a BA in Psyschology, and I am still trying to figure out what my next big step in life should be. This program will not only allow me to do what I've always wanted to do, which is help others and give back, but will also help me gain the amazing hands-on experience, outside of the western culture. 
"This exposure to non-Western approaches to heal the mind is massively beneficial for anyone wishing to work with international client groups in the future." 
I am reaching out to family, friends, and anyone who is willing to help make this dream a reality, by asking for donations to help fund this amazing opportunity for me. This will be completely voluntary, I will not be working for those 4 weeks, so I will definitely appreciate it. Anything and everything helps! In advance, thank you, even for taking the time to read this and/or wishing me well.

I feel exteremely happy and proud to have been given this opportunity. Can't wait to tell you all about my travels and work in Bali, Indonesia.
