A few words about you and your passion:

I have always been a very curious , passionate, conscientious person and have volunteered locally in other projects so doing a cultural learning trip with volunteering was a natural progression although challenging and rewarding at the same time.

A few lines about the history of your subject:

In July 2010 I embarked on a cultural experience trip to Nepal in South East Asia. This project came about with a notion or an idea that I would expand my horizons and travel to an unknown land, independently with a Irish company called EIL, where I would not only volunteer but immerse myself in to the social fabric of society from there I learned many things, customs, traditions, values and about myself..this is my story……….

Anything else you may want to say:

I hope you enjoy my talk and take something away if only a small percentage of what I gained from the richness and beauty of the Country as a whole.
