This was an experience of a lifetime. It was eye opening, humbling and makes you so appreciative of the little things we take for granted. The greatest gift you can give is yourself, and there is no better feeling in the world. I decided to go on this journey by myself because I was personally going through changes in my life. I had only hoped that the feeling I would have coming home would be exactly what I imagined it to be and it is and so much more. My mind, body and soul is refreshed and renewed. I have become a better and stronger person because of this opportunity. I am so grateful and so thankful for everyone I met along the way during my time in Tanzania. They have forever changed me and made such a positive impact in my life. As much as I hope to have made a difference in all the lives I met, what they’ve done for me is priceless. The amount I have grown in 3 weeks is unbelievable, and I cannot wait to go back and experience more. Next time, I hope to stay longer. Lastly, don’t have any expectations; just go with an open mind. You will have the best time ever. It was the best risk and decision I have made in my life thus far.
