Rebecca’s Reflection

Quest Mexico was the experience of a lifetime for me. Something I will never forget. I learned so much about Mexican culture, politics, poverty and traditions seeing it all first hand. It’s so hard to come back home and describe to your friends and family because it’s so hard to put these things into words. Traveling to villages and listening to the families’ stories that live there was so amazing yet so heartbreaking because of the way they have to survive. I felt bad walking by people trying to sell things to you and having to say no. The orphanage was also such a rewarding day. It was so much fun to play with these kids all day and just watch their faces light up as we passed around books, played ball with them and especially when they got to play with our digital cameras. They were such wonderful children with eyes full of opportunity and hope. I can’t even explain how much of an experience this was to me, all you can do is see it for yourself and make opportunity and hope appear in your eyes.
