Why did you decide to volunteer with ISV in Thailand?
Sophie: I decided to volunteer abroad with ISV in Thailand because I worked with the company and recruited enough people that they paid for my trip abroad! Also I was very interested in fighting human trafficking.
Describe your day to day activities as a volunteer.
Sophie: As a volunteer I painted the preschool, taught English classes, hosted the radio station, and held educational sessions to prevent human trafficking.
What made this experience unique and special?
Sophie: This volunteer abroad experience is unique because you do 2 weeks on volunteering and then a 2 week adventure tour, so you get the best of both worlds!
How has this experience impacted your future?
Sophie: This experience has impacted me in every shape, way, and form in my day to day life. I look forward to promoting human rights the rest of my life, and I have even started up a non-profit focused on international education to make a difference in the world. Professionally, recruiters are very interested in my trips and it is a great way to diversify myself from other applicants. In fact, it is a great way to show them how you react to challenging and different situations.
