Step out of comfort zone

Heidi LaiHong KongUndergraduate of Psychology & Education

June 19, 2017

I would like to thank Light and Love Home for letting me join overseas volunteering trips in the past few years. I traveled with the team to Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, etc to visit the local families and hold children interest classes. Participating in these trips made me leave my comfort zone and face the real world. Moreover, I had a chance to meet other passionate volunteers from across the globe. All these have helped me to grow into maturity, especially to care for the orphans and underprivileged children. In addition, it indirectly steered my path towards education. I hope that one day I could serve the children in these developing countries!

感謝光愛中心,使我在過往數年能參與海外義工服務,能到訪印尼、馬來西亞、菲律賓等落後地方,探訪當地落後家庭並舉行兒童興趣班。參與光愛中心國際團隊讓我走出安舒區,面對世界,又認識來自不同國家的熱心義工,使我個人成長不少,特別對孤兒和貧窮兒童有 擔,間接驅使我在教育方面進修,盼望有天能在異地為兒童服務。
