"This experience impacted me in many ways. I saw a different point of view from the world and not only through getting to be apart of nature (outside) everyday, but through storytelling and culture that everyone there shared with us. It also showed me how to treat my body with the right food and nutrients."
"I learned and was also reminded that, "The sky is the limit." During the activities, I have noticed how alike and different I am from everyone around me, and that to be unique and special in any way is a blessing and we should embrace them."
