My name is Delila Pastin, originaly from Colorado but recently graduated from Verde Valley School (VVS) in Sedona, Arizona! After spending two years at this International College Prep School, thanks to my amazing benefactors, I have made many connections with people from all around the world including China, Italy, Germany, Australia, Russia, Mexico, and many others! While I would like to jump back into school as soon as possible for my career as an event manager, I have also just finished the past two years of highschool at an intense college prep school and would like to visit my new international friends before my next big step at Community College in Denver.
I plan on meeting up with friends from China towards the end of the year where they will help me to get accustomed to China and show me all of the local finds! From there, I plan on teaching English with my online TEFL degree and finding any odd jobs while exploring China!
After China, I'm off to Thailand to do volunteer work through WWOOFing, as well as any odd jobs that come my way. Thailand is known for it's tropical location which I've never been exposed to, growing up as a mountain girl!
This trip is an extremely amazing opportunity that I would love to make happen. Being able to explore different continents geographically and socially can open up new doors to my life and connections that could last a lifetime. Leaving the states by myself and for the first time is probably one of the scariest things I could think of doing and I can't wait to push my limits and see what the world has to offer.
I will be working throughout the summer to raise money towards food, hotels, and other travelling expenses like airfare and boat systems, however, I am not able to raise the funds for airfare alone given my time frame and prior commitments during my summer.
THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN!
I am extremely grateful towards any contributions put toward my trip! A little goes a long way! If there are any questions at all about my trip, please feel free to ask and I will be updating people along the way as I develop more of a day by day schedule as to where I am going and what I am doing.
Thank you in advance for your thoughtful support!
