The Dominican Republic has changed my life. I now, more than ever, appreciate all of the opportunity and resources we are provided with in the United States and I developed a strong passion for diversity. Seeing life outside of the U.S opened my eyes to so much and it forced to reflect on my self and who I want to represent as a human being (my goals, beliefs, and values). Being apart of this journey was a blessing . I can not wait to travel back on my own time to help a community in need but also spend time in a country that has very little yet fully appreciates the lives they have been given.
