The amazing thing about cultures and languages, is that you never stop growing and learning more about yourself. I have most certainly learnt to embrace what life has to offer. It has also given me the courage to apply to go and study in France. I applied to study a course in social care, learning how to look after and arrange social and learning activities for different members of society (e.g. children, people with disabilities and the elderly). I have chosen this course because I enjoy taking care of others, and this is a way where I can study and practice what means the most to me. Furthermore I will get to go on two placements in the two years that I’ll be studying. Plus, studying in France will give me the chance to know more about my culture and background. I believe it is important to know who you are and follow, learn and create your own destiny.
Recently I found out that I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to undertake this course in a town called Tours (pictured above), where my family come from. I have to admit that this decision feels very daunting and a little scary, even though I am excited about it. I am always up for a challenge; I need to be able push myself if I want to be completely bilingual and more. This is because if you don’t, no one else will and you won’t discover your true potential and be able to be your own person. By going beyond what you think are your limits, you’ll miss out on certain experiences.
I believe this is what Edufun is trying to teach the young minds of today; to be open to what the world and people have to offer you.
