"Looking back on my time in Costa Rica, I would highly recommend it to anyone of any background or experience as you may be surprised by how much it can benefit your studies as well as motivate you as a person."
"Happiness can come from the simplest of things and I learnt to embrace whatever life throws at you. Volunteering in Fiji gave me an unforgettable experience and I developed and learnt lots of new skills which will be beneficial to me in life and in my employability."
"If I had any advice for future volunteers, it would be to stay opened minded, have the enthusiasm to study and live in their culture and don't expect too little nor too much. Have no expectations as you don't know what experience you will return with! One thing is for sure - it will be a life-changing one."
"I’m sure everyone would agree to say that the three weeks you spend teaching the children will be the most rewarding weeks of your life."
"A very important skill throughout my time in Costa Rica was communication, and doing all of these jobs and marketing tasks allowed me plenty of time to communicate to my peers and to the public."
