Around Bulgaria in 6 Weeks
The story of a small town girl with a big ol' dream
There once lived a girl from a land far, far away...
Malaysia - the land of mixed spices
To me, Malaysia is a true paradise. It possesses fascinating and diverse cultures, the traditional and the modern, untouched rainforests, pristine islands and beaches, and abundant riches in flora and fauna. But more importantly, it is where my heart belongs, and I would be deeply honoured to share my culture and my roots with people around the globe.
Malaysia's most famous local dish - a mouth-watering combination of roasted anchovies and peanuts, hard-boiled egg, coconut rice, and sambal chicken.
A Melting Pot
Malaysia is known for having a mix of cultures. Malay, Indian, Chinese and Aboriginal culture blend and exist harmoniously with one another.
The amount of public holidays Malaysia bestows on its citizens is astounding. Such religious and cultural festivals include Hari Raya, Deepavali, and the Lunar New Year among others.
A Melting Pot
A life changing experience in Bulgaria
Why I chose to be a Global Citizen
Everything seemed to fall into place:
- A project that combines my interest in Child Psychology and education - check!
- A chance to visit and explore cultures from a part of the world I have never set foot on - check!
- An opportunity to contribute something meaningful to society - check!
The more I researched on Bulgaria, the more I fell in love with it. The historical buildings and architecture, the fire-dance ritual, tarator... I desperately wanted to experience all of it with my own senses.
So now my exchange is confirmed, and my bags are packed. With all my heart and soul, I hope you will welcome me with open arms.
