Daniel McNamara

8 November 2008

My name is Daniel McNamara and I am currently in the sixth form at St Joan’s. I am taking Religious Studies, History and Design & Technology at A level. Next year I hope to go to university where I would like to pursue my studies of Religion and History.

I first became involved with Udayan through the sixth form fundraising week for the children there, and it was during this time I learned all about the home. I myself took part in the pyjamas day which involved a crowd of us getting sponsored to attend lessons, walk around the school and Rickmansworth in our nightwear. Mine were pink and not very warm! It was after this that I asked if I could go on the trip because I was interested to see Udayan and the work it carries out.

I hope to gain a wider perspective from this trip, and believe the experience will be challenging and fulfilling. I think I may return with a better understanding of what is important in life.
