Upon graduation this May, Jazzy (Belgium, UWCD’22) set off on her gap year journey. Reflecting on her experiences so far, she said: “After graduating, I travelled back home to Malaysia where I started to open myself to work opportunities that would help me make and save enough money for the beginning of my gap year. Luckily, I was able to land three consecutive jobs, which ranged from waitressing at a newly opened Korean Kimchi restaurant to working as a volunteer with Stellar International School to teach students of ages 5 to 15 English through drama and managing a 4-week course of improvisation for young students with a partner from Stagecraft. Each job was different, therefore, I was capable of utilising the characteristics that UWCD taught me, such as, the ability to adapt and accept change. I am currently in Peru living with a family that only speaks Spanish, which opens the doors of learning and multicultural understanding. Here I teach English to young students and act as a volunteer teaching debate in a local school in Piura. Recently I was called to be part of an MUN (Model United Nations) in Trujillo as a co-chair of the crisis committee. Though my gap year is only in the early stages, I am so grateful for all the opportunities I have had so far and look forward to new enriching experiences as the year continues.”
