Wanting to be a teacher, I looked at Dona Deisy as a role model. How she was able to teach the kinder garden students to recycle and in community that traditionally does not do that. It was influential to see that I want to have the same impact in my career to not only the students but to the community. I was taken back at the amount of work she does by herself. Crushing and sorting the recycled times took a long time as group, I can only imagine how much time it takes her when she is by herself. This was truly inspirational and I am glad I had the experience.
I really appreciated the work the volunteers did. It was inspiring that some of them have been volunteering and serving their community for over 10 years. I liked how affordable clean water was given back to the community. After this experience I am more conscious about my water use. Tending to the trees that had been already planted in the forest, I felt that I had an impact because I was helping the environment. Planting the group tree allowed me to feel like I left my footprint and was rewarding and fulfilling.
