Volunteering in Mongolia
I experienced my first ever culture shock when I travelled to china earlier this year. I immersed myself in a whole new world and gained an invaluable experience of getting to know local chinese people and learning the traditional Chinese ways. As soon as I moved on from China, I began craving that culture shock again, and thus signed myself up for a teaching project in mongolia.
In March 2017 I will be combining three passions of mine; music, travel and culture which i have learned. And I will be doing this through a tourist company called mongolia tourist center. 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 Mongolia 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.
