The impact on me personally is that it has put a newfound appreciation and respect for what we have here in the United States. I realize that we have a greater responsibility to help others. There are countless people that are suffering in need of our time, resources and/or money. I have become more tolerant and compassionate when I see people that are having a difficult time and realize we are all part of this world.
The experience was the most rewarding and memorable trip that I will never forget and I greatly appreciate the Board of Giving University for giving me the opportunity to serve.
