My Travel Story

by: daniela altamira Start Date: Mar 25, 2017 - End Date: Sep 24, 2017
Hello! My name is Daniela, I am 20 years old and live in Toronto Canada 

Its nice to watch documentaries about the world and all kinds of different foods and cultures on your screen. And you can imagine the smells and sounds, or the weather and the humid air on your skin. But I've been imaging it for too long now and I think I'm finally ready to live it for myself 
Though I have tried, it is hard to save up being in school and giving whatever small income I receive to help my family pay for bills and such. 
For a while now I've been dreaming about travelling and seeing the world with my own eyes. I love hearing stories about how travelling and volunteering has changed people's lives, and id love for that to be my story too. 
I'm studying full time to become an actress and will be graduating this April. 
Ill continue to peruse a career in the arts while still working as much as possible
I am hoping to join "We are Bamboo" in Surin, Bangkok to work on projects that better the life of Elephants and their surroundings. And to also teach English to local children. 
I feel like time is running out and I've
accomplished nothing. I often feel like I need a bigger purpose, much bigger than anything in my reach but I lose inspiration and motivation easily but I believe once I feel it and become it I won't back out. I'd like for this to be the beginning of my journey and the rest of my life.
though I have a bit saved up I am nowhere close to my goal so I would really appreciate any help I can get
