So far I have been to Europe, North America, Africa, Asia (very briefly), Australia and my next destination is going to be Middle- and South America. But just because I’ve been to a couple of places doesn’t mean I’ve seen it all. There is still so much more to discover! I believe that it’s impossible to ever “see it all” but I guess I will die trying.
My next destination: Costa Rica
On the 18th of January I will finally be off to Costa Rica where I’ll be participating in an AFS community service program. I’ll volunteer for a Latin-American non-profit organization called TECHO (Spanish for roof) with the aim to fight extreme poverty in Latin America, by constructing transitional housing and implementing social inclusion programs. This will give me the chance to help bring positive change into this world. After many years on focusing on myself and my own education, enjoying so many privileges, I can now finally do something useful in this world and hopefully something that has a positive impact on other people’s lives.
Moving to a place I have never been before, living with a host family I have never met before and learning a language that I don’t speak yet is definitely a challenge but I’m sure it will be worth it. On m blog I want to give you insights into my life and tell you about all the amazing moments, but also about the challenging ones that come with it.
