So in 19 years I achieved a lot. I am so grateful for the opportunities I have had and the life I have been able to live because I know that there are billions of people out there that cannot even have the basics in life live clean water, food and a roof over their head.
In my 19 years I have
-Lived in two countries
-volunteered in an orphanage in South Africa
-Been accepted early into a good university
-Been able to go on a fully funded research expedition with Earthwatch
-Been part of YATZ VIC
-Been a volunteer then paid staff member at the RSPCA
-Been a volunteer at the first Olympic Games in South America and Brazil
-Travelled to the other side of the world all alone to a place I have never been before that doesn’t speak English
-Volunteered at an animal rehab centre in Brazil
-Volunteered at a school in Brazil
-Been part of school leadership
The last one is very important because not everyone gets to say that as many people as I said before struggle through life without the basics
I am so grateful that I have been given a wonderful life and a caring family with amazing friends.
Thanks for the amazing 19 years and the many years to come.
