For those of you who don’t know, I am Kirsty MacRae, a 17 year old Scot who is heading off to the Dominican Republic for a year! After a rigorous selection process I was chosen by Project Trust, an educational charity based on the beautiful Isle of Coll, to volunteer as a teacher for 12 months overseas. In preparation for my year I had to raise over £5,900 which I managed due to the overwhelming kindness and generosity of friends, family, and strangers. I also recently attended a training course on Coll where we made friends, learnt to teach, and learnt much more about our lives next year. I’m so excited to leave for the Dominican Republic on the 8th of August, and this blog is just to keep anyone who is interested updated on what I’m up to over the next year!
