Kemi Ami-Agbaje: Initial report

Home | Footprinter Reports | Kemi Ami-Agbaje: Initial report

Going to Fiji in March will be a huge stepping stone for me.I have never been one to travel or to experience voluntary work out of my local community.So as much I am looking forward to going; I’m pretty much looking forward to coming back as well.The thought of gaining the experience I need after my degree will definitely boost my confidence for when I have graduated.

Apart from the fact that it would help my career; there is also the joy of going out and seeing what the world has to offer. Not only am I going to help myself ; I am also going to help and organisation who are going to change peoples lives with my help.As much it has been a struggle for me to save up and raise this money; it seems like it’ll all be worth it in the end.

The one thing I am scared of is the long flight to the otherside of the world (the flight is 20 hours long; with a stop off in Korea) however its all an experience; so I guess I will be fine.The other thing is the big culture shock and nerves of living in another country.However I am prepared for the home sickness for the first couple of days and I have done my research on the country itself so I am clued up about most things. Its also beneficial that I have a room mate/collegue who is also from the United Kingdom who I have been in touch with and she has also kept me up to date with everything that is going on there now. Altough I have done my research; I still refuse to go with any expectations. I dont want to sike myself up and then be dissapointed, so I’ll rather just go with a ”watever happens ..happens” sort of attitude.

Its about six weeks to go before I travel and everyhing is sorted out. My vaccinations are booked all I need to do it pack my suitcase now.
