Looking back, I couldn't have left with a bigger smile. Working with younger kids and doing service work are two of my favorite things to do and I am really glad that through our FYDP program we were encouraged to go out of our way look for such programs. At first I attended an orientation event and then met the 4th grader that I had to tutor for the day. From the start we had a great relationship that grew, both soccer fans, both loved playing some basketball with our friends, and through helping him with his work, I learned how to better express my point and provide more efficient guidance in an academic field that I was confident in. After this event, even though I was able to fully fulfill my services hours with my group, I want to return here and continue working with the latino student fund. Another personal highlight of mine was seeing the fact that we both (my student and I) live and are based in the US, however come from an international background, which gave us even more to bond over, sharing our experiences with one another.
