It really is an experience of a lifetime

Arriving for the first time in my first ever summer school experience was a very nervous feeling. However I felt welcome right away and was able to bond with everyone in my group and in other groups too. I’ve never been in a place with people from so many different nationalities and different culture backgrounds, so learning about them and sharing my own culture was a good experience. This was truly the highlight of the trip, along with the councilors and one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. The trips were also unforgettable along with unique clan events that I’ve never experienced before that helped me understand the importance of team work. Even though the summer school unfortunately came to an end, the friendships I’ve made were just getting stronger and I know would last for a life time.
