"I know that I will forever remember my experience at the Girl's Home. I feel grateful that I had the opportunity to experience Perú with a perspective beyond that of just a foreign student. I am glad that I was able to see a part of Perú that opened my eyes to humanity, to justice, to government functioning and above all else—reality. I know that my ELAP experience will forever stay with me. It will forever impact the way I view service, compassion and new relationships."
