My Humanitarian Trip to Thailand
Even as a child, I've always believed in a life full of travel and spectacular adventures, always having stories to tell, learning about cultures completely different than my own, and always saying yes to a new experience. That's why I've planned an upcoming trip to Thailand with International Volunteers HQ to teach English to students in Chiang Rai, a northern province in Thailand.
Will it be scary? Yes, I've never travelled on my own before. Much less to a completely different country on the other side of the world with a culture I know nothing about.
Will it be helpful? Absolutely. The absence of English education in an individual's life continues to be one of the core causes of low-income households, poor economic growth, political instability, illiteracy well into adulthood and overall, a declining advancement of technology and healthcare.
If there is one cause I will speak volumes to, it is providing education to those in rural communities who have little to no access to it. I hope to change even one student's life in my two weeks there by using my passion for teaching and childcare to give these students an opportunity to learn a universal language in our society, and make their own waves as they grow.
