I am overjoyed to have received the opportunity to be part of the Young Ambassadors group of 2018. When I received the acceptance email I was thankfully home alone, which saved me from a lot of embarrassment since my reaction was very ecstatic!
Bonjour à tous, My name is Emma Hartshaw and I am a Year 12 student at Cashmere High School in Christchurch. This year I have the utmost privilege of being a Young Ambassador for the Following Family Footsteps trip for 2018.
A week has passed since the trip, and wow! What a trip. Two weeks of amazing memories, and unforgettable experiences. For me, the trip was a highlight reel; each day full of learning, emotion, discovery and of course, our honorary mascot Guillaume Miguel Hyboud-Peron. Guillaume was our bear, was shared amongst us, bought us together and was our French guide (originally from Indonesia) who took us on the tour of a lifetime.
I feel the best way to describe the trip, is by using the word...
