Student Post: Delilah (¡Deh-leee-lah!)
Hey! My name is Delilah and I'm a student in Santiago session one! I've really been enjoying my time here and I'm amazed by all of the different things that the Dominican Republic has to offer. From the food, to the culture, to the children, it's so amazing, and I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to be here.
For the past three days we've been hosting a camp for La Escuela De Santa Maria, and the children are outstanding. Some of my favorite activities that we have done so far are making fruit loop necklaces, having girls go vs. boys to see who can build the tallest tower, and making paper airplanes and racing to see whose can fly the farthest.
I was amazed by how sweet and welcoming the children are, and even though we are the ones teaching and leading the kids, the kids are teaching me lessons that I'll never forget. I'm so sad that 3 days of camp have already passed, but I cannot wait for the other 5 that have yet to come!
