Alumni Spotlight: Beata Holka


Polish architect and interior designer. In love with her life woman who believie that happiness is a choice and everyone is able to live one's dreams. Travelling to south-east Asia actually.

Why did you pick this program?

It is a priority for me to be in line with my values which are: personal growth, fulfillment and altruism. Taking part in "beach and build" program in Thailand goes with all of this! As an architect and interior designer I could use my abilities and the passion to help creating a better place to learn for kids.

I also love learning new skills, having new experiences, finding new friends and having fun. Volunteering is a great way to get it all! Moreover, I wanted to spoil myself by spending time in a tropical place and Koh Samui island is absolutelly gorgeous!!

What do you tell your friends who are thinking about going abroad?

Just do it!! You have only one life!

What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone going on your program?

An advice? Hahaha I am warming you! This decision can change a meaning of your life! Seriously! Giving a helping hand and being a part of this miracle have a huge impact. This is an incredible feeling deep inside your heart. You need to experience it on your own.

What is more, the staff is wonderful and very helpful. I love them all. You are in good hands. So be open-minded and enjoy your adventure! You deserve it!

What's your favorite story to tell about your time abroad?

Ooh how can I choose only one story? Around the world travel gives you a lot of amazing memories! From exploring stunning places you couldn't imagine they are exist, hanging out with inspiring people from over the world, doing crazy things first time to finally - finding out that you are a badass! Start travelling and you will write a new page (the book!) of a story of your live! When you are abroad, far away from home, family and friends, out of your comfort zone - you truly discover yourself. And then magic happens...
