“Work and volunteering through a hodgepodge of cultural exchanges abroad for more than five years has helped me to truly become an educated and skillful person with contacts in many fields. For many years traveled independently, absorbing myself into various cultures with sometimes profound experiences! In new and stressful situations I have learned to focus, find self-motivation, commitment, tolerance, and enthusiasm.”

Along the way, I picked-up odd jobs, fruit-picking, and farm work - WWOOFing.

Mostly stayed with local families in traditional Fijian and Fijian-Indian villages for a duration of five months.
