For as long as I could remember I had wanted to take a gap year to travel: I really wanted to see places very different from home and the people who lived there. I also sought adventure, independence and maturity before I went onto university and more studying.” My gap year has taught me many things and given me an invaluable sense of independence. Previously I was nervous about going to university but I am now excited about the new experience and I think I gained this confidence during my six months away. All the hours in bus stations has given me a real get up and go attitude while my encounters with South American people, some of whom are less privileged than myself have been very rewarding and also made me appreciate my education and comfortable life in the UK.
