Before AYC I didn’t have super close, like-minded friends. Now after the trip is over, I can’t wait for the next opportunity to see all of these beautiful people again! I began the trip nearly crippled with anxiety and ended the trip with a stronger faith and a heart on fire, ready to light up change in my home town.
