This experience was amazing, but that doesn’t cut it. I developed in so many meaningful ways, yet in so many small ways as well. I learned the importance of flexibility, of hard work, of deep relationships. We got to see how the members of local communities live, how they work, and how they have fun. It was incredible to see. While the work was at times tiring and gruelling, at the end of the day, it felt great to see that we had helped the communities grow and continue to see improvements. The staff were fantastic. Every single staff member was helpful, hard-working, organized, caring, and just plain bad-ass. They supported us on the project and off, and I hope to stay in touch with them for a long time.
