Being an intern at Great Heart Charity Association was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. With GHCA, I have discovered the real side of Malaysia where people are nice, helpful and caring.
6 weeks ago, I was just a frightened intern who kept thinking of going back home immediately. But then came GHCA, welcoming me like a family member, helping me grow into a better person.
I have learned a different way of volunteering during this enriching journey. Going for assessments and groceries shopping for underprivileged families was a new thing for me, but Great Heart leaders has managed to make the process easier for me to go through.
Today, I want to thank all GHCA members for always giving me both the help and support. I’m certainly going to miss the time spent in Malaysia but I will always keep good memories of it.
