FROM Sans Souci to New Zealand, Kate Fitzsimons has expanded her charity to educate more young people about the importance of travel safety.

The Nicole Fitzsimons Foundation was established in 2012 in the memory of a young woman, Nicole Fitzsimons, 24, who died in a motorbike accident in Thailand.

Nicole's younger sister Kate Fitzsimons runs the foundation.

As part of its first round of international visits to schools, Ms Fitzsimons flew to ACG Parnell College in Auckland, thanks to a Jetstar Flying Start grant.

She spoke about the dangers of riding motorbikes in foreign countries and the importance of purchasing travel insurance.

"It's exciting to spread the foundation's message outside of Australia," she said.

"Our mission is not about stopping or discouraging people from travelling."
