“From the amazing people I met, to gaining practical experience in a different country, the SLV.Global Bali experience was incredible. Gaining insight into how a difficult culture manages physical and health difficulties gave me a completely new perspective on interventions, use of resources and cultural values. We are so lucky to have the privilege of growing up in a Western society however all of the service users were incredibly grateful to have support through basic, hand-developed activities and interventions. Seeing this first hand has encouraged me to be more appreciative of the 'smaller' things in life, that we often forget are so important. The feeling of getting a smile or seeing even a slight difference in service users over the course of the placement was unforgettable. I’m excited to now be an SLV.Global Ambassador so I can help share some tips, as well as encourage others to take up this opportunity!”
