Can I go back??? – Missing Jamaica Already!
Been home for a couple of weeks now and I sure do miss JAMAICA!!
The overall experience was amazing!! I learned so much about the Jamaican Culture and its History! Being there for a month was definitely a great way to learn and be present with the everyday life in Jamaica.
This trip has encouraged me to look into abroad opportunities helping or working with children for a greater cause. Being able to work with the Alpha Boys, be apart of their school life and watching good and not so great things occur within the their home just grew my interest to continue to work with children, especially those of Black and Latino decent. The boys have so much potential, amazing dreams to be someone great, and so much talent1 They taught me so much about life and the little things to appreciate despite what goes on around me. We all grew close to the boys and allowed them room to be open and share their unique personalities and talents. This was my favorite part of the day being able to share our experience with the alpha boys! We had soooo much FUN interacting, teaching, learning and talking with all of them!
If I have the opportunity to do this trip again – I would not second guess it! Not only did I learn and immerse in the culture and life of Jamaicans but I was apart of a great experience learning, growing, adapting and making a difference!
Jamaica we miss you!!!
