My Travel Story

Hi! Firstly, I want to truly thank you for visiting this page, your time and generosity is very much appreciated. Let me tell you a little bit about this project.
I experienced my first ever culture shock when I travelled to Morocco earlier this year. I immersed myself in a whole new world and gained an invaluable experience of getting to know local Berber people and learning the traditional Moroccan ways. As soon as I moved on from Morocco, I began craving that culture shock again, and thus signed myself up for a teaching project in Kenya. 

In February 2017 I will be combining three passions of mine; music, travel and social justice. And I will be doing this through a volunteer company called International Volunteer HQ. As described by IVHQ, the​ ​music project is designed​ ​to give children the chance to let their voices and songs be​ ​heard, and I am beyond excited at the thought of being apart of such an experience. My participation in this programme is completely voluntary, therefore it is necessary that I fundraise allowing me to make a difference in the lives of those I am working with. Contributing to communities in need abroad is something I am incredibly passionate about and is what fuelled my desire to apply and be accepted into an International Studies course at University. So ofcourse, this opportunity to teach music in Kenya is very meaningful to me. I have learnt more than I could of ever possibly imagined whilst travelling and I hope that through this project I can continue learning and gaining such worldly experiences. I would be so very grateful for any contributions you generous people can offer me on this life changing pilgrimage.
