“I just wanted to say thank you so much for making this experience as amazing as it was. I truly have made so many new friends and have grown so much as a person in just the week that we were gone. I have gained a newfound confidence and outlook in my life and so far, it has been making me happier and more appreciative of everything. So thank you for being a part of this incredible experience and making it possible for me to have such a great time. I really cannot thank you enough for this!”
