The opportunity to go to India came unexpectedly but would be a greatly beneficial one to both myself and my local community. I am a training teacher in Nelson, New Zealand, a city that is becoming an increasingly beautiful, diverse community. To be the best teacher I can be it is vital I have understanding of cultural differences and histories to inform my teaching practice. I am passionate about lifting limitations off the lives of all children and during our stay in India we have an opportunity to go into both schools and orphanages. I believe this experience could consolidate that passion even further but also give me keys to ensure children from our Indian community are given the best possible opportunities to thrive and flourish. A lecturer from my university (University of Canterbury) has personal contacts in India and as a result the opportunity to complete our community engagement paper abroad arose. A chance to travel with purpose makes this opportunity massively meaningful to me.
