This trip was absolutely amazing. Life changing even. It opened up my eyes to so many new cultural perspectives and ideals and allowed me to dive into a brand new culture I barely even heard about and truly experience it first hand as to how amazing the Fijian way of life is. Volunteering in the local school with the cutest kids you will ever meet in your ENTIRE life was just the beginning of my extraordinary time there along with the dancing in the moon light after dinner, learning a Fijian dance, swimming in the crystal clear water, and one of my favorite parts was waking up to the sound of waves every morning. Truly magical. This trip is for everyone and I would certainly take the chance and go on this special and unique adventure of a life time.
Last summer presented itself with a unique opportunity to go to Fiji. Fiji highlighted its massive coconut trees, marine life diversity (manta rays, sharks, vibrant coral!) and most importantly its warmhearted people. I loved immersing myself in a culturally diverse environment and interacting with the locals. We participated in kava ceremonies and talked about everything from rugby to our personal lives. The community service took place on Nacula Island. Our group worked to complete the painting and beautification of two school buildings. While working, we peaked through the classroom windows to see eager children learning and absorbing information like a sponge. And at that moment I felt a deep responsibility to create a sound environment for them so that nothing impedes their learning. Overall, this trip definitely shaped me and I can't wait for more opportunities like this!
