My name is Yara, I’m 17 years old, I’m coming from Northern Ireland and I chose to come to South Africa because I wanted to try something new this summer and I wanted to visit a different part of Africa to experience a new culture and I love working with children. It has been an amazing experience and I’ve learned so much from it. I have learned to be appreciative of all the opportunities I’ve had and the enthusiasm of the children has taught me that no matter what your circumstance is, your happiness is not defined by your state of living. Our coordinators Charlotte and Tilda have been so supportive throughout the whole trip and have helped me with every little problem I’ve had. I have loved every minute of this experience and I will hopefully come to South Africa again.
