A Celebratory Day

It was the last day of placements today which was very emotional. It has been a great week of placements and I think everyone has learned and grown from the experience. Here are some quotes from participants about their experience this past week.

“I made a strong connection with Mistro, the leader of construction. Its amazing how you could not speak a word of Spanish and still understand what he wants. Its a unreal experience that you can be from two different places in the world and still have a connection like no other.”

-Mykal Tournidis

“It was an indescribable feeling seeing these kids who have disabilities and have the ability to make you smile without a cause.”

-Arslan Chaudhary

“I think it was a really good experience because we have gotten to connect with people who have the same values as us. We all want to help people who are in need. It has been really enlightening because we come from wealthy places and to see the poverty in Pacifico De Villa and surrounding areas.”

-Victoria Chow
