I am 18 years of age and have just graduated highschool. I wish now to travel to let us put it litely - the regions and people who were not fortunate enough to come into existence in economically sound circumstances... or to put it bluntly as a singer put it "The poor and beaten down"(Johnny Cash). I want to go out and expierience a new side of the world and help out as much as I can while I am there. The reason I chose the Philippines is because I am not very fluent in languages other then English - which is widely spoken in the Philippines. I can, just give to "charity" and donate a dollar to those jars of cash going to the "children in need" but in all reality one does not know all the time where that money goes and what difference it makes.. I wish to make a difference, but I can not do that from the bubble of comfort in America. I shall make myself useful.
