Experiencing the Bateyes

This trip was an experience that is unforgettable. I made friendships with people in the Bateyes and with people that came on my trip with me. It changed my view on life because I now value everything I have and realize, none of it is necessary for happiness. Seeing the people in the Bateyes and interacting with them, you realize that they live in extreme poverty, yet they are happy people. I felt like I truly emerged in the culture and learned a lot about their living conditions. I am excited to share what I learned with my community at home, to make the world more aware of the human rights violations.
