Bio: 
Since I was born, I have always wanted to help people, and have found great pleasure in working with children and also in helping with the elderly. I have also helped organisations for the homeless, and even - as an atheist - religious organisations. For me, I cannot see any situation in which it is not appropriate to do one's best to help others. However, as I am a high-achieving student, I have had very little time to spend volunteering. Nonetheless, I have managed to complete a vast amount of volunteer hours over my International Baccalaureate Program, but only in small doses. I would really love to spend at least a couple of weeks, if not a month or two over a summer volunteering. I would love to teach, as I am good at that and have experience, but I am equally up for anything that could be thrown at me. One of the things that has really pushed me to find some serious volunteer work was when I drove past the Calais refugee camp while on my way to university interviews. The state that these people had been reduced to really shocked me, even though I already knew what was happening, seeing it in real life (even from afar) gave me the kick I needed to devote a lot more time to helping those in need.
Volunteering Experience: 
I have sung at retirement homes, collected and distributed food for the homeless, collected for the renovation of a church, collected stationary for a school in Africa, volunteered at my local school, teaching both English and French. I have struggled to find volunteer work within organisations in France, as the laws on minors working are strict, and volunteering is not as widespread as in other countries, as things like charity shops do not exist.
Education: 
Studying for the 2016 session of the International Baccalaureate Diploma
