" I learned essential skills for dealing with diverse backgrounds—interpersonal, problem-solving, critical-thinking and leadership skills. All the things I learned will hopefully help me give back to my community once I graduate. ‘We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.’ I think I definitely learned that here.
