My name is Alexandra, I am a 19 years old Marine Biology student in the UK. My whole life I was passionate about animals and nature, it pretty much revolved around these two things. I have not been in many places because I was not fortunate enough to have a good financial status, nor a good, happy family- which was the cause of my anxieties and depression. I would like to let everyone know that this is me being honest about my life, I am currently trying to fix myself, because life is worth living. I appreciate everything I see, I see beauty in every single landscape and I have set my goals in life at a young age. My goals are travelling and taking care of our imperfect but magnificent Earth. I am fixated on doing something for our planet, I want to make people understand what we are doing to it. I am originally from Romania, our land is absolutely stunning, we have got mountains, the Black Sea, volcanic lakes, glacier lakes, lots of green areas, great food and friendly people despite what is happening at the moment out there, that is corruption and narrow-minded people. I would say that I am a kind and trustful person (not trying to boast, I don't like talking about myself but it's for a good cause), I have volunteered many times and I would volunteer all the time. My favourite kind of volunteering is taking care of animals, planting trees and working for PELICAM- the international film festival about humans and environment.
About the cause
Choose A Challenge' s mission is to raise funds for different causes by taking students to trips around the world. This is a travel company that helps people, therefore the money will only go through me to help other, but they will help me as well with my mental health. Since my goal in life is to travel, going to Nepal- which is one of my favourite country in the world, full of beautiful sights and culture- this would be amazing. I will work as well until the event occurs (30th of August 2019).
In total, it cost 2150 pounds and it is paid in three instalments. One at sign up, one in January and one in May. I would be forever grateful and I promise I will always be kind to everyone. For everyone to understand, the money will come to me and I will pay the company for the trip, though, these money will still go to charities, they won't be spent by me and I will also provide proof once I pay the first instalment.
Thank you for anyone who is willing to donate! You will always be remembered! :)
