About Me

1st January 2014

Hi! I’m Emma, a 22-year old British volunteer about to embark on a trip to Uganda, East Africa, with international volunteering charity ICYE-UK.

Following my adventures in Sierra Leone last year, I couldn’t wait to get back to Africa to volunteer again, this time in a different country, context and culture. I still find it difficult to put into words how much I learnt and gained from living and working in Sierra Leone for three months, both personally and professionally, and I know that Uganda will be equally as enriching. 

I’m not sure who said this quote but it really sums up why I am passionate about volunteering and travelling… 

…and that’s also my answer to anyone who asks me why I want to volunteer and not get a job!

I’m so grateful to everyone who has supported me on my adventures so far and helped me reach my fundraising target, you’re all amazing!

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy the blog!

Emma 🙂
