Come Meet Gemma in North Yorkshire - 19 January 2019
The ClubHouse Coffee & Cycles, 18 Newmarket Street, Skipton North Yorkshire ,BD23 2HR - 19 January 2019, 11:00-13:00
My name is Gemma, I’m from a small town called Skipton in the UK. I met with a GVI ambassador (Leigh-Anne!) who really helped me to choose a project right for us and talk me through the process of applying – I already felt part of the GVI family before I got on the plane to fly to Seychelles. The GVI team on Curieuse were amazing and their energy was what kept me going. My favourite part of the experience was being able to release a lemon shark back into the sea after an examination – truly beautiful creatures. I learned from my trip to the Seychelles that I’m a lot stronger than I thought I was and also some things that I am good at that I didn’t think I would be. We both felt completely safe and supported throughout our time on base and made some amazing new friends who we still see now we are back home in the UK – and even some of them have flown over to the UK to see us!! I’m very sad to have left and I hope to see them all again one day on Curieuse island.
Come meet Gemma for a brew and chat about her experience.
