Final Reflection Questions
What were the most significant take-aways from your experience?
How welcoming and wonderful the majority of the people we met were. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat. It was an eyeopening experience to see the conditions some of these people are living in. Also, how great all the teachers and staff are that organized this trip.

What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
Especially those who are climbing the mountain, make sure you have (or rent) warm enough sleeping bag, parka, and hat. This is a once in a lifetime experience. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat. You have a lot of fun and learn a lot in the process.

How did the experience impact you and your future educational/career/personal goals?
Opened my eyes to living conditions some people have to deal with. Might also change my career path. Not sure yet on that one. I loved every second of this trip, and hope to have an opportunity to go back and work at some of the orphanages in the future.

How did the experience impact you and your future educational/career/personal goals?
I think it influenced it a bit. It made me want to go back to Tanzania one day, whether it be professionally or to finally climb the mountain which I was unable to do this time around.
