My dad is Indian and therefore so is half of my greater family. It has always been in my mind that one day I would visit India in order to truly see the country and learn more about the culture and people.
Being a care worker, I love to dedicate my time to being around other people and helping as much as I can. I feel I am a very responsible person but will always be a child at heart and so working with children to nourish young minds is something that has always had a big space in my heart.
When I saw the programs at ISPiiCE I instantly knew that would be the place for me. In the middle of the mountains in Northern India, a secluded area with real families, I felt that my time there was precious for me but also for the people around me.
I taught at an after-school English class for kids ranging from about 6 - 16 years old; I also worked at a kindergarten with children aged from 3 - 8; and finally I helped renovate a new nursery.
I loved every minute of my time there and believe it was one of the most significant moments in my life.
