Renata is the Volunteer Co-ordinator for our team of volunteers heading out to Thailand on the 7th June. Find out more about Renata below…
I am a 3rd year forensic science student at Keele University. I have volunteered in the past mostly participating and helping out in sport events but also with a few small organisations as a one day kind of thing (work with children with disabilities, zoos, etc.). I have a vast experience of independent travel, and although I have not been to south East Asia, I have been to India. I have fundraised so far by doing general collections on student nights out, but I have also challenged my self to eat the hottest chillies in the world.
