Meet Alec Campbell - Volunteer in Thailand & Cambodia
Meet a volunteer
Alec Campbell is a student from Canada. Alec had a wonderful experience volunteering in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and in Chiang Mai, Thailand with Volunteering Solutions. In the interview he is giving some insights into the experience.
Why did you choose to Volunteer Abroad ?
I chose to volunteer abroad because I have been an avid traveller my entire life. For those who share the same sentiment, we know that a high degree of personal fulfillment can be attained from venturing into the unknown, and that fulfillment is greatly beneficial to all people entering higher education and lifelong careers.
Where did you Volunteer abroad and why did you choose these destinations ?
I spent two months in Cambodia followed by two weeks in Thailand. Since I had begun planning my gap term, I had been focusing on Southeast Asia, especially the Indochina region, because of its rich history and architectural wonders from older civilizations. Cambodia especially was a must for me because of the insight that could be gained from a population who had been so deeply affected by the Indochina Wars. As a volunteer, you also have the opportunity for sightseeing when you are not working, and so I used the opportunity to see Angkor Wat and other major sites.
