My Travel Story

by: Antonia Chela Start Date: Mar 17, 2018 - End Date: Jul 14, 2018
Hi my name is Antonia Chela and I am interested in becoming a museum technician. This trip is very important to me. My country lacks the resources to train professionals who can curate and collect our cultural heritage and history for diverse and numerous foreign people to experience through visiting our museums. I am passionate about being able to extend our historical legacy for years to come through museum institutions to teach people about South Africa's rich culture. I would like to make a difference in my community by sharing what cultural knowledge we possess in South Africa. This is meaningful to me as I care about what my country has to offer foreign visitors. It will also allow me to launch my career working in museums and have a better understanding of how they work. I choose the UK and the Netherlands as my destination as I know that they will provide quality work opportunities for me to learn and they have a vibrant culture I would like to experience.
