My Travel Story

by: Nayara Sangiorgio Start Date: Feb 15, 2017 - End Date: Aug 14, 2017
Hi everyone,

I am volunteering with SLV, which is an amzing organization that helps Psychology students gain experience abroad, these guys are awesome, and they are helping young students of the Human Sciencies change the world as we know it into a much better place.

I'll be travelling to Sri Lanka in august for five weeks to train with professionals of the Mental Health sector and improve the skills I have gained at university.
I'll be working with individuals with mental health conditions, attending workshops, learning about the role of religion within science, and also teaching english.
This experience will help me sharpen my academic skills, but most importantly teach me and those brave others travelling with me to deal with such conditions with empathy, love and solidarity.

the great Psychologist William James said "compare to what we ought to be we're only half awake"

and awareness is the main goal of this project. to help us as future Psychologists to learn from these individuals and those who care for them as much as we can teach.

For those who so kindly would like to donate and sponsor me, I shall send a full report of what was learned and the academic and personal growth I have experienced. Much appreciate !!
