My Travel Story

by: Brooke Majkowicz Start Date: Oct 17, 2017 - End Date: Jan 4, 2018
Hello everyone, my name is Brooke and I am currently a junior at Eckerd College majoring in Biology and minoring in Psychology. Looking back at all the years that have past its hard, if not impossible, to think of a time where I did not want to work with animals. Its been the fire that has pushed me out of my comfort zone and has gotten me to the awesome place in my life where I am today. I have fostered dogs, cats, volunteered at shelters, and even spent a summer working with marine mammals. One thing that is almost as big as this passion of mine–the world. This January I have the opportunity of combining my passion for animals with my love of culture and travel. I have been given the opportunity to travel to South Africa for the entire month of January to live at a center to rehabilitate and provide daily care for orphaned rhinos and any other animal that makes its way to the center. This opportunity that I have been given still has me in awe. I am, however, asking for help in covering the funds of this incredible program. This is an experience where I know I will grow as an individual as well as making my way closer to transforming my dream into a reality. Anything helps! Thank you so much in advance and I look forward to sharing this experience with everyone!
