My Travel Story

by: Maya Hull Start Date: Mar 25, 2017 - End Date: Sep 24, 2017
Hi, my name is Maya Hull and I'm a senior at Southridge High School in Beaverton, Oregon. I have been given an incredible opportunity to travel to Thailand this coming December for 10 days. Like many, my biggest dream is to travel the world. My involvement in the Peace Corps Club at my school has continued to inspire me to see the world and all it has to offer. This experience of traveling to Thailand will help me work towards this dream.

Although my trip is not an educationally focused, traveling itself is a great educational experience. Traveling the world provides an education that’s absolutely impossible get in school. Immersing myself in this completely new and different culture will really broaden my perspective, and open my eyes to what life is like around the world. I will be traveling alone to meet with a close friend of mine who will already be in Thailand, which will be a learning experience in itself. We will be staying in hostels and Airbnb's, which will allow us to build meaningful relationships with others, as well as keep costs low.

I would be extremely grateful for any kind of support. Whether that means a donation, encouragement, or just positive thoughts. Thank you so much.
