My experience with Latinitas has been incredible!
Every week, I look forward to seeing the bright and beautiful faces of my girls. No matter how my day is going or how stressed I feel, my girls always improve my day and put a smile on my face.
It has now been a month and a half since my experience as a Club Leader began. Every Tuesday and Thursday, I have the opportunity to work with 10-15 awesome young girls. Participating in activities from writing letters to creating stop motion video projects, these girls never cease to amaze me. They thoroughly enjoy expressing themselves and their creativity and Latinitas has provided them a safe space to do so.
During that hour and half each week, they share with me their thoughts, their worries, their likes and dislikes. I have loved getting to know each and every one of them. Slowly but surely, each has won a place in my heart. Now, I definitely don’t know if I’ll ever be able to let them go. I want to be there for them. I want to hear them out. I want to encourage them to be the best that they can be.
I am thankful to the Latinitas program for giving me the opportunity to have this amazing experience. ^_^
