This alternative spring break has been an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. Today, we worked together to paint a gymnasium at the “Boys and Girls Club” and worked at the elementary school P.S 57, helping kids with their homework. The experience thus far has been enlightening and enjoyable. Being submerged in a different culture than I am familiar of is interesting and there is much to be learned not only from the students from other schools but the kids we’re tutoring and working with. It is great to have a sense of worth by helping the community and giving back. I feel that going on this trip was important because it allows me to see from a different lens and immerse myself in an unfamiliar setting.
