gap year 2018-19

Hello, I'm Bonnie and I'm undertaking Gap Year with SU Scotland. I’m so excited about the opportunity to gain more experience working with children and young people, helping them to explore the Bible and find out how important Jesus is, whilst also growing my own understanding of God as well.


I think the year will be both challenging and exciting and I am looking forward to this experience after leaving school. My faith gives me confidence - I know God has a plan for me, and I know I’ll grow more in this confidence as I try new things. I am also looking forward to developing leadership skills as I take on more responsibility.


In my spare time, I enjoy writing short stories and love creating digital art. I’m also a huge Harry Potter and Star Wars fan - I love to read and re-read the books and watch the movies over and over again!


I’ve opted for a gap:local year, which means I’ll be placed with an SU Scotland Regional Worker. I’ll be based in Edinburgh with Es-team and there will be loads to do; I’ll be taking part in SU Groups, planning and leading assemblies and lessons, getting involved in youth events and being part of the leadership team of SU Weekends, Holidays and Missions. I will also be part of an international mission trip to Ukraine – I can’t wait!
