Giving Back

Tomorrow, I will be on a plane heading to Nicaragua. Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in the world and many families do not have the necessary resources to a great education.

My school partnered with Seeds of Learning, a nonprofit organization that improves educational opportunities in Latin America. Every year they send 20 work groups to build rooms for schools, and we are lucky to be one of them. Not only are we building schools, we also have the chance to interact with those who we are giving back to.

Though I have done small service events around my community, I haven’t done something as big as this. It is important to realize how lucky we are and make sure that everyone can have the same chances that we have.
