What was special about our time in Myanmar was exposure to a Buddhist culture uninfluenced by western values, and a wonderful community built on respecting the dignity of students as “children of God” through an empowering education.
In the beginning, I was having a difficult time with my purpose and feeling a bit insignificant. I kept rummaging through my brain for the answer as to what my purpose was.
As a child, I was told repeatedly that one person could impact the world. This was a sentiment I had always wanted to believe but for reasons unknown could never comprehend until my sophomore of college.
I think my experience has given me some real life experience in selflessness.
