Reflection: "It was quite refreshing to hear the enthusiasm of both the students and Rwandan volunteers. The service aspect of my project is probably the most important to me. By instilling a culture of serving among the university students, I hope to further enact change for many years to come, long after my project is finished."

Reflection: "If there is one thing I have learned here in Nicaragua it is that, You must be the change you wish to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi. I've seen a lot of change this summer; in my heart and in the hearts of others. How could I go home and never look back? I will always have this experience to remind me that service to our brothers and sisters is the best use of a life."
