My Travel Story

by: Elena Polirava Start Date: Jan 10, 2018 - End Date: May 9, 2018
Hello Eveyone,

Thanks for taking some time to read about me. My name is Elena, I am a Greek stubborn heart currently spending my life in Dubai, trying to find my way to convert my dreams into reality. 
Since I remember myself walking I was always running after any animals I was founding in the streets or in our neighboors yards. I had a big love and a big passion about them no matter if there were dogs, cats, sheeps, goats, horses, bunnies or snakes. Along the years this love was growing bigger and bigger until my first trip out of Greece I realized this is what I was born to do. Nothing else is making sense. No other job, is just a waste of my time. At the age of 15, I was dreaming of becoming a vet but I lost my way somehow in the following years. All this love and affection brought a new chapter in my life 3 years back called: veganism. Now in my 26th year of life I am closer and determined than ever for this dream to become true. I am planning my first volunteer trip in Africa along with some big kitties, my favourite ones, and this is where I need your help and support. Even if this means any donations or just your best wishes and positive energy. In the meantime, I am about to start my course as a veterinary student cause it is never too late to be whoever you want to be. I believe in a better world, wish less cruelty towards animals and because animals don't have a voice may I be the minority but the world will never stop hearing mine. Give me the chance to change the world for our beloved co-passengers on Earth. 

May all of you be well and happy. Thanks for your support!
