My name is Chevaune Collins, a South African citizen currently studying towards my Bachelor's Degree in Education. This Fundraising Campaign is aimed towards funding my trip to Vancouver, Canada in 2021. There is a conference being held by the World Forum Foundation and the conference is geared towards enriching, empowering and equipping educators with monumental skills and mindsets to further nourish the children we teach.
I am passionate about the field of education and helping to grow the importance around the profession. I am so thankful for the platform I have access to in order to achieve my goal and the opportunity provided to me with help from the generous people around the world.
The best part about this journey is that I am not in this alone, I have the support of my family and friends but most importantly I get to share this with my best friend of 12 years, Ryan. We are both dedicated to the goal of reaching the conference. We get to travel and experience the gift of expansion and modernised teaching approaches and get to share it with all we come into contact with.
My teaching philosophy is Play, Educate, Celebrate: Play because learning should be fun and we should always hold onto our inner-child. Educate with the inclusion of all and the vulnerability and willingness to learn from others and to Celebrate even the smallest victories and the mistakes in which we learn from.
This journey is the foundation of my "Pay-it-forward" vision to in the future also assist with advice, knowledge and monetary support for the next generation of future educators.
