Diversity Perspective

Elleni Hailu

"Not only was I stressed about the trip, I also did not have any time at all to be nervous for the trip. However, my time there was absolutely splendid and I loved every single minute of it. I was in awe of the unconditional love the Salvadorans profess and their strength in empowering their community despite the difficult adversities they faced."
