Fiji-- a trip of a lifetime

My expectations for the program exceeded anything I could've asked for. I did not understand to the full extent the strong bonds I would form and the amazing people I would meet. I expected to make some friends and help others in order to better improve their lives. I did not understand the service I would be receiving in return which is the amazing culture I'd be immersed into and bonds I'd create. At the end of the last day of community service, when all the work was finally done and we were moving on and leaving Tongo forever, I felt extremely accomplished in the work we had completed knowing I put my all into it. I personally gained a sense of community and an understanding of how different the world is in different places. The highlights of my experience included a combination of playing with the children in the village and getting to know them and learn about their lives, along with being in Nadi after the community service and seeing the different sides of Fijian life.
