2-mins with Mikaela - 2018 grad
Hey Mikaela! Thanks for chatting with us. Let's get stuck into it!
Most amazing moment of your Schoolies trip?
Vietnam had so many amazing moments, however, I have two experiences that stand out. The first was spending time with the children during the community project. In our spare time we played volleyball with them, and we visited a primary school as well. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face when I was with the kids. The second moment was our stay at Ha Long Bay. This stay felt rewarding, like what I expected of a schoolies trip. It was a time of relaxation and fun for the whole group!
What would you tell a Year 12 who's unsure about signing up?
Take the leap and go on a Schoolies Unearthed trip because it is an opportunity that teaches you to give back, as well provides time for you to relax after a stressful year of study. This trip allows you to connect with new, like minded people from all over Australia, who you are able to make the most amazing memories with.
Are you still mates with the people in your group?
My group from Vietnam are definitely still mates! We have a group chat on social media which we use to stay connected with each other. A group reunion is always the main topic of conversation and I can’t wait to see my Vietnam fam again!
