These favorite memories include the James Madison Parade of Champions, my favorite band competition, and the band banquets where everyone comes together and has a great time reflecting on the past year. However, the band concerts are something that I will miss greatly. Working on two to three pieces of music for a couple of months sounds tedious. But after practicing and refining it, we always have it perfect by the end of the concert. Feeling this sense of accomplishment is very satisfying.
For many of the campers, this is the only event they have all summer long. We basically become the children’s parents for three days and nights as they stay at The Way Summer Camp with us. This means that our needs become second to the kids that we are put in charge of during the camp, and I learned so much from my children and the other
After more than three months I have seen the impact. I have seen my students interested in different cultures, as well as how big of a presence I am in their learning. Whenever I’m absent for the whole day due to City Year conferences, the next day they would ask me why I was absent and how they missed me. I’m ready to take my City Year’s skills, pack them in my bags, and take them with me to another country as a Peace Corp volunteer. In order to change the world, you have to start from home.
This is where the students get to perform any kind of talent they possess in front of the school and community members that choose to come. The activities and events we host are always very fun and exciting. I have been a volunteer since my freshman year of high school, which is when they allow you to be a volunteer. Before that you may participate in the activities. I feel that this volunteer project does benefit both me and the recipients, because I get to experience such an amazing act of kindness that changes a person 's life forever.
I was living in a rather small cabin with eight, ten-year-old girls and my best friend was not there to keep me from going crazy. It was in my hands to ensure they created lifelong memories that summer. I struggled a lot during these four weeks, maybe from exhaustion or from all of the arguments I had to resolve within the cabin. But one night, after my campers were asleep, I was sitting in my bed when another counselor, Ana, came up to the screen and demanded that I follow. She and another fellow counselor
Joy practices between 2-3 hours a day, 5-7 times a week, which doesn’t include games. They have to pay for everything themselves: travel, camps and college. “The cheerleaders at CU are one of the most dedicated athletes and need to be rewarded.” Says Joy Barber
Since I have been home I have been trying to explain my trip to the people around me and every time I do it always comes out, I have no idea how to explain it, I have no words. I have never felt so impacted by three weeks of my life I think back to Rwanda and it seems like a lifetime ago. It was such a surreal, changing experience that it feels like a dream. Every time I see somebody wearing something that reminds me of Rwanda I get sad but then I get happy because it means that it wasn’t just a dream. I still listen to Spotify playlist and think about the boys I spent most of my time with and try to reflect on every individual day as if I were going through the trip again.
I have gotten so much experience on how life is for the natives. I traveled the most around was Colombia. I visited El Paso, Barranquilla, Cartagena, San Andreas Island, Kali, Bogota, and Turbo. My favorite place in Colombia was San Andreas Island. Colombians would fill the streets with people and tourist near the beach every Sunday to chat and party.
I beleive my biggest regret this first semster was not joining any clubs. My goal was to join a club right away, but I couldn 't find that I liked. Hopefully next semster, I will abe to join a club that fits me the best. Joinning a club is big in college becuase jobs will look to see if you joined any organzitions thorughout your college caeer. I think I might join Accounting Club next semeter.
Brooks was able to find information, that I found, was rather captivating. The value of youth has become exaggerated significantly. So, rather than people sitting in their homes thinking to themselves, "I can 't wait until I am an adult and start a family " it has become "I wish I was 17 again." My question is, “Why did the lack of responsibilities
August 15, 2014: I got a call from a mother who had seen my babysitting ad at the local market. She urgently needed someone to start watching her twin, three-year-old boys four times a week. My initial thought was, "Can I take care of two toddlers by myself?" The only reason I wanted a job was to help my mom pay the bills. Eventually, I learned that I love spending time with them.
