Working on a residential property development project in London and South East of England. Planning to embark on a solo six month sabbatical trip through Central and South America.
I volunteer with I-Vol to give other people a group volunteering experience, gain new skills and help other young people take part in international volunteering projects.
I know that if I hadn’t got involved in international volunteering I would probably be in a job I didn't enjoy and trying to find something to do in my spare time.
I’ve learnt that it doesn't matter what kind of background you have, you can still do something big and amazing with your life and share the experience with people from all over the world.
It has helped me learn some great life skills and have amazing experiences.
