My Travel Story

by: Holly Bick Start Date: Nov 7, 2017 - End Date: May 6, 2018
Hi my name is Holly and my goal is to travel to Ghana as a voluteer worker and teaching assistant with the children in a village community - you can see in the images above.

For a very long time I have looked up to people who have been able to contribute their knowledge, a skill or a talent to the World because I believe that takes courage. I know that I am a living a very privilidged life, one that so many people in the World aren't able to enjoy. For me to have this opportunity to go out to a very poor apart of Ghana and simply make some children happy, help with the building of additional rooms at their school - with the aim of offering them to get the chance of a proper education and to teach them about our/ my culture and vise versa.

My passions are art and sport and I work hard to express myself and excell in both. One thing I am looking forward to is inviting the children into my world of creativity and being able to open their eyes as well as mine to new things.

This is so special to me because I have struggled with academic subjects for a long time, and whilst I won't be beaten, it has been incredibly useful for me to have been introduced to other aspects of education which I am now studying in a more vocational subject and I can now see how we can truly influence the future of those less fortunate than us in such a positive way. I think that this story will be part of my learning and experiences and I am excited about the challenges to come.

I love to socialise with people of all ages and making bonds with them is truely incredible. Going on this trip I hope to gain a wider perspective on our world today and at the same time bring some of my energy knowledge and experiences to the children of the Ghana community.
