Check out Maxton’s Thailand Video….Awesome!
To get to know a little more about Maxton, here’s a snip from her LLA application:
To me, it’s never mattered where I can help anyone. I just want to be able to make a difference in people’s lives, just like several have made an impact on mine. I believe that any small action to help someone is still progress. Even though volunteering abroad has been like a dream that’s always been a short leap out of reach, I refuse to give up. Financially, any travel away from home without financial help is out of the question. Without people taking me seriously, those around me don’t think I’m worth an investment. Any help at all would mean the world to me and would allow me to start changing the world in any way made available to me. I dream of helping people of all ages and nationalities; I dream of helping preserve all the wildlife I can. Any opportunity to help is something I would take without a second of hesitation. I want to be able to break barriers between countries and the people living in them. I dream of being able to meet people and help improve their lives as they make an impact on mine. Even though they may not look, talk, sound, or live the same as I, they’re just like me, no matter how far away they live. Without this foundation, I wouldn’t even have a slight chance at being able to go on a volunteer trip. Helping other people is something I want to do for the rest of my life.
