Review

The two months I spent in Fiji working at Ratu Meli Memorial School were the best times of my life! Not only did I help establish the first kindergarten, I met some of the most incredible people who eventually became my friends and now are my forever Fiji family! I felt like I truly was able to make a difference and use my skills as a teacher in a valuable way. Please don't be confused however; this was not a vacation--I put as much time, work and effort into my role as a volunteer teacher as I would working in the states. Though there is plenty of time for fun don't get me wrong! But you are there to work to make a difference. It was more than I ever could have imagined and to this day is an experience that has impacted me as a professional and person in more ways than I could have ever thought possible. Incredible doesn't even begin to describe my experience--its something you have to do to understand and trust me, its worth it!
