Helping Her Community " I’ve always wanted to help out in my community but was never motivated enough. This trip was the motivation I needed. I am now going to look into assisting in a hospital or soup kitchen. Volunteering is an easy way to help out in the community that can make a big difference. This trip gave me the confidence to really be a big impact my community in the coming years and the rest of my life. "
Highlights of Her Trip "My favorite place we traveled to throughout the entire trip was Lake Tahoe. Lake Tahoe is honestly the most stunning body of water I have ever seen in my life. I fell in love with its 3 different colors of water as a boat took us out into the deeper part of the lake to do tubing. The shore has bits of gold-like glitter in the crystal clear water, making it shine. If you move farther out into the lake, the water turns turquoise like the Caribbean water. The deepest part of the lake is a dark blue, like that of the Greek islands"
Highlights of Her Trip "Camping was a good experience because we got to bond and help each other. We helped each other when we had to make the tents. We bonded when we had a campfire and made s’mores"
Helping Her Community "This trip has taught me to have confidence and have a higher self- esteem because it matters what you think about yourself"
