My name is Tayla Louw. I’m a 16 year old learner at Danville Park Girls’ High School in Durban. In the March/April holidays of 2019, learners of my school will be attending our annual overseas tour. This year being the: “Special Interest Science & Technology” Europe tour. We will be visiting Italy, France and Switzerland over a span of 11 days. Not only will I gain from this tour academically, I will also thouroughly enjoy myself in a new environment, with my friends. I am a bright student and a hard-worker but unfortunately my family does not have sufficient funds to send me overseas. I’ve never been out of the country and I have a passion for travel and learning. This would be a life changing experience for me. And I will forever be grateful and feel truly blessed shall I be given this opportunity. It is something that I won’t get the chance to experience anytime soon. I am an active person and I have a true appreciation for the beauty of the world around us. It has always been my dream to visit the rest of the world I ask dearly if you could you please help me make this a reality.
