My Travel Story

by: Atiya Munir Start Date: Oct 27, 2016 - End Date: Oct 26, 2017
Hi guys! 
So I'll just start by telling you about myself! I'm currently in my first year of Modern Languages an UOB. From a very early age, I started to develop a profound love for languages and have been studying French for 10 years, but have never had the chance to visit the country, which is still quite upsetting for me. Because of my love for France, I have taken up Italian! 5 years ago, my French teacher said to me 'Go and become a translator, you'll be fab.' And that is what I will be! I'm not giving up no matter what life throws at me - I'm continuing to do what I love and what makes me happy and I will do it till the day I die.   

Every time I think about France, it reduces me to tears. The fact that I have such a deep love and admiration for the country and the culture, is something I want people to understand. It would certainly not be taken for granted. 

For my year abroad, I plan to spend most of the year in Paris (where else?!) studying at university. (And spend my birthday on the Eiffel Tower) Then, I endeavour to stay in beautiful Roma, teaching English as a Foreign Language! History has always been a subject that I feel is very beneficial, and I love that I was able to study it, therfore I dream of going to the Colloseum, and travelling to Verona, the home of Romeo and Juliet. 

But of course, this trip isn't just for myself. I want to be able to treat my family to a little summer getaway in Italy. Not only so they can stop worrying about me while i'm away, but so that they can also appreciate the beauty of their cuture, just like I do. I need to raise as nuch money as possible to ensure that this will be the best year of my life (and so I can afford a flat there)

Please please do whatever you can to help me! I'll be eternally grateful for whatever you can add to my travels - this is something I need to do, and I can't do it without you guys!

Love to you all!
