10 October 2010

My name is Camilla and I am currently studying two languages, French and Italian. I love learning languages and travelling to new and exciting places which is why I am so looking forward to visiting India! After the sixth form I am going to study in Oxford to do a PA course and with that I am hoping to work in Italy, France and possibly other countries!

Udayan has always been a huge part of the school and I have known about the trip ever since year 8 when I first came to St Joan of Arc. I have always said that I want to go to Udayan and here I am ready to go! At first it seemed unlikely that I would be able to go because the team had been selected and there were no places left. However, when one of the group dropped out Mrs Weldon gave me the opportunity of a lifetime to join the party, and for that I extremely grateful.

I know that this trip will change me in some way and make me more aware of what is going on in the world. I hope that when I visit Udayan I can be of help, and share my joy of being there with all the children and the rest of my group. I am really looking forward to the whole experience.
