Student Reflections

“I believe it is one thing to talk about being a world citizen and understanding the world around us, and then it is another to experience another culture and begin to practice empathy. This trip was more than service for me but changed the way I view the world.”

“I believed I would gain a better understanding of what service means, and I did. Service can be as complex as creating a new water treatment service for a group of people or as simple as helping children from the the ages of 3-4 to solve puzzles and to play with them during recess. Either way both experiences can make a lasting impression on those that you are helping.”
