I’m so happy I had the opportunity to volunteer in Mexico these past few weeks. It was quite an adventure. I got to volunteer at an animal shelter, a protection home for young teenage girls, and I even got to teach a little English! I also had the great opportunity to make new friends from all over the world. My fellow volunteers have inspired me so much; they are all so ambitious, caring and hard working.
