My experience

I knew I wanted to make the most of my time at uni and volunteering in a developing country has been on my bucket list for a while! I also just turned 21 so in a way this was my 21st birthday present to myself! There is nothing like experiencing life in a different country and being immersed in a completely different perspective on life has taught me so much. I will never forget the generosity and spirit of the Cambodian people and my fellow volunteers! My favourite memories include meeting the other volunteers from around Australia, seeing sunrise and sunset at Angkor Wat, tuk tuk rides, the most amazing coconut ice cream, and one of my little students writing "Who is in your family?" on the whiteboard with hardly any help!! My advise is to go for it!! Though there will be challenges, you will also experience so much personal growth.
