Tullamore College student in Zambia trip

TULLAMORE College student Michelle Molloy has been chosen to travel to Zambia this April with Self Help Africa.

TULLAMORE College student Michelle Molloy has been chosen to travel to Zambia this April with Self Help Africa.

Michelle, a current fifth year student and former Transition Year ‘Student of the Year’ winner, has been selected after successfully competing against her peers in a difficult interview process.

Michelle has always had an interest in the Developing World, stemming from her participation in several debating and public speaking competitions at Junior and presently Senior level.

During Transition Year Michelle studied Development Education as part of her course which further strengthened her interest in issues affecting those less fortunate. She actively participated in raising awareness of those worthy causes through her involvement with many successful fundraising activities in Transition Year.

Michelle will travel with Self Help along with a group of students and teachers from various other schools across Ireland. Teacher, Ms Ann Foley, will travel with Michelle, departing on April 15 and returning on April 22.

Ms Foley has undertaken numerous volunteering roles in the past and has spent 12 weeks in Zambia as recent as Summer 2010. Since then she has also travelled as a volunteer with the Niall Melon project. We wish them a safe journey as they undertake this life-changing, selfless experience.
