Forever Young

This past May, I, alongside eighteen other centennial Students traveled to Chinandega, Nicaragua to share what we know about health and hygiene. We ran many activities within the community we stayed in; however, I truly believe that the point of this trip was to become part of the community; which I feel we all did. Personally, I was quite attached to a girl named Tatyana, she reminded me of myself.

I can’t say that my life has ever been impacted in the way that it was by Tatyana. As soon as we locked eyes she ran over to me, grabbed my hand and pulled me toward the skipping rope; I could not remember the last time I had, had so much fun.ย At that point I knew that she had changed my life forever, I wanted to laugh and cry all at the same time and I couldnโ€™t explain why.

Since returning to Canada, I have realized that Tatyana โ€“ten years my junior- had taught me something priceless, she taught me how to live. Without this Global Learning Experience, I would not be the same person I am currently.
