If youre a Baha'i in the UK please read this!

Postby carlamh89 » Fri Jul 17, 2009 11:36 am

I'm a college student and I'll be finished with community college by December of 2009. I plan on taking the spring term of 2010 off and then attending a University in the fall of 2010.

Seeing as how I have time off next spring I wanted to use that time to go to London. It's been a dream of mine for a long time. I know that rent for a place would be more than I could afford... So I was hoping that maybe a Baha'i family, in London, could take me in for a few months. I'll be twenty years old by then. I could possibley find a part time job at a shop or a restaurant, or I could help around the house. I've been cleaning houses for a long time, with my mother. So I have no problem helping with house work or baby sitting children. I also know I'll have to acquire a work permit and all that.

I planned on returning to the States during the summer of 2010, so again this is only a temporary, few month, thing.

I have family all over North America (Canada, United States, and Mexico) and I've been to all of these places, but I've never been across the Atlantic and I want to go somewhere different. My father got to travel around throughout his whole youth life because of the Baha'i Faith and I've always envied him for that.

Another reason I want to move for a while is because I was born and raised here in the same area of Florida. Although I have so much pride in my country and where I live, I'm getting a bit bored and I want to know what it's like to live somewhere else. I want to move for a while so that I can appreciate where I live now even more.

So please please please help me!!!

-Carla

Greetings! :-)

While you're there, do be sure to visit Shoghi Effendi's grave!

You can walk to it from the Enos Grove metro station.

(Near it is a small building used as a Baha'i information center; the person who runs it has frequent firesides at his home nearby and often invites visitors to attend.)

Regards, :-)

Bruce

I don't think I'll make it. I haven't heard back from any of the many different e-mail adresses I've sent to the NSA in the U.K.
I'm still waiting though and I really hope I can go.
