SLV.Global Placement: Peer Mentor, Sri Lanka

Current Role: "I am currently working as a Teaching Assistant and planning on returning to the SLV.Global team next year on the Bali Placement."

Tell us about your SLV.Global experience: "During my time as a Peer Mentor in Sri Lanka I was extremely fortunate to work as part of an incredibly committed and dedicated team of both national and international staff. Seeing how a completely different culture operated and also how volunteers operated in such a complex environment, has inspired me and given me many skills I never thought I'd learn."

Tell us what you gained from your SLV.Global Placement: "Time management, communication skills, extreme flexibility, teaching skills, team management, how to travel across a different country using public transport, creating sessions from only basic resources."
