My year with Youthlinc really changed my life. From the moment my team all met for the first time, to the second we boarded the plane to come home from Cambodia. It really helped to have such an amazing team along side me, going through the exact same things I was going through. We all got along so well. A lot better than I thought we were going to. We became a family on this trip. We stuck together and never left a single person out. I truly think the Cambodia team was the best team here. We were all so determined to fundraise and help. We all worked so hard to get to out goals. We were even determined to have the best lessons to teach the kids there. We spend so much time thinking of ways to make our lessons even better. We revised them about four times each! Every thing we were going to be doing over there was so important to us. We wanted to make sure everything was perfect. I do think we deserve so recognition for out hard work. My trip with Youthlinc was something I will never forget. Our hard work was greatly appreciated by the villagers. It really touched my heart to see how excited they were with everything we had done. I felt very honored while I was there. I feel so lucky that I got to be a part of it. They were so welcoming from when we arrived, to the day we left. I learned that even the smallest things, can make the greatest impact on a person. We changed their lives as they changed mine. It was truly the experience of a life time. I have made life long friends within the group and also back in Cambodia. I will definitely try to go back and volunteer and help out as much as I can! I hope that next years Cambodia team will live up to our teams standards. I think we really raised the bar this year and I hope it gets raised even higher next year. I want to personally thank Youthlinc for being so incredible. Without it, I don't think I would have been able to have had this amazing, life changing experience. Youthlinc helps change the lives of so many people and with their help, I got to change lives too. I can't even begin to thank Youthlinc enough! I hope it keeps helping people like me, to change the lives of others. Thank you Youthlinc, for making 2012 the greatest year by far for me!!!
