“My 4 week placement in Sri Lanka with SLV.Global was the most incredible experience. Not only did I make lifelong friends and learn more about myself, but I also gained such valuable first hand experience in the field of mental health. Having lived and studied in both the UK and Australia, I had found it very difficult to gain practical work experience in a psychology related field, so I am so grateful for SLV.Global giving me the opportunity to use the skills and knowledge that I had learnt in my Psychology and Counselling degree to help others. This placement assured me why I want to pursue a career as a psychologist.
Before arriving in Sri Lanka, I was very nervous about spending a whole month living with a Sri Lankan homestay family and volunteering in a country where I knew little about the culture or language. The SLV.Global staff, my homestay family and my fellow SLV.Global volunteers were all so welcoming and friendly that I felt right at home almost straight away and I soon wished that I had planned to stay longer.
I am so excited to be an SLV.Global Ambassador so that I can pass on my knowledge and experience to other university students so that they too can have the amazing experience that I had on my SLV.Global Sri Lanka placement.”
