HSI is probably the most inspirational experiences that I have gone through so far in my life. Anyone would be lucky to be granted the opportunity to take part in this phenomenal experience. The atmosphere here is so warming; everyone here is here because they want to be making this such a positive place to be! I have made sooo many friends and soo many memories that I doubt I will ever forget until I’m old and senile and can’t even remember that the dishes go in the kitchen not in the closet of my guest bedroom. I can’t pick a favorite memory I did way too much and laughed way too much to pick a favorite, one that I most likely won’t forget is the morning my roommate fell asleep standing up after she turned off her alarm. Her and I still laugh about that.
“If people refuse to look at you in a new light and they can only see you for what you were, only see you for the mistakes you’ve made, if they don’t realize that you are not your mistakes, then they have to go.” ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
Growth of someone is not in body but in mind. I honestly can’t look at myself or others the same way. Everyone, including myself is unique everyone has their own background, but their background good or bad doesn’t defined them. Causing me to want to or desire to reach out to more people just to create new friendships!!
In my classes I have learned so much! In my multimedia class it just deepened my love for photography and has really heightened my awareness of the stupidity of others post online. Once online always online! I also was more enlightened me on how stereo-typed females, males and other groups are due to the exploitation of others online.
In my science class I was able to deepen my knowledge on local poverty and malnutrition as well as understand the depth of world hunger.
