Testimonial from Oli Barnes

The responsibilities and trust that the staff gave me really infused a sense of achievement. With the confidence I gained, I am studying Environmental Science At Oxford Brookes university in hope that one day I can return once more with GVI in a more professional capacity.

The responsibilities and trust that the staff gave me really infused a sense of achievement. As a result of me writing this years on, I have even seen some of the work on the Similan islands come to fruition and closed off to tourists, which will allow time for the coral reefs to heal and rejuvenate. As an environmentalist, that feeling cannot be replaced by anything; it gives you the sense of engagement with the wider picture. With the confidence I gained, I am studying Environmental Science At Oxford Brookes university in hope that one day I can return once more with GVI in a more professional capacity.
