My dream has always been to make a difference in people's lives, and I have finally found the way to fulfill my dream. I hope that during this trip I will be able to help the elephants that need it most, in order to stay out of circuses or be euthanized. These elephants were abandoned when it became illegal to use them as loggers, which was a good thing, the problem being that they became a burden to most villagers who sold them to bad associations (such as circuses, or used as props for photos). I would love this opportunity to grow and meet new people interested in the same things as I am ; making a change. In order to live a fulfilled life, I need this trip followed by many others, to make an actual change in the way the world works today.
