Forever Changed:Growing up in a family where worries about survival where mostly nonexistent, I was faced with a new perspective when I arrived in Africa, at Rising Star Junior Academy. One can only imagine the world and how it is, until seeing for themselves. Children, whom face obstacles I've never had to consider, surrounded me with a fondness that was ever intense. Captured above, the children I taught assembled on my 18th birthday, presenting me with beautiful flowers. May God bless them!
