This trip was one that I will never forget, and one that I would never change. This trip changed the way I view the world. It also allowed me to connect further with who I truly am as a person. Throughout this trip I gained a deeper understanding of how other people around the world live everyday. The amazing people in Peru who accepted us from the moment we arrived to our departure showed me what it meant to embrace your culture and where you come from. These people take so mush pride in who they are and where they come from and that taught me to embrace who I am. Through this experience we met and interacted with so many people that have encouraged me to be more confident in my own skin. This experience has changed me for the better. Many people can hear about places where poverty impacts the communities everyday, but actually being there in person demonstrates a much larger picture of how each community overcomes the obstacles thrown in their way. All of these people live their life as if no other place on Earth is better, they take pride in who they are and so should we. The people of Peru take nothing for granted and neither should we. I would like to thank all the people involved in putting together this wonderful trip, I will never forget all the memories we shared and will always carry around the lessons learned about life with me forever!
