I knew from the moment I arrived on campus that I would take more from my experience with the girls at Daraja than I could ever give. The students, and everyone else on campus, are the warmest, most inviting and inspiring people I've ever met. Sometimes they're silly, rambunctious teenagers, then the next moment one of them will say something you'd never imagine coming from someone so young. They are spirited, passionate and intelligent. As for the work I did - the communications internship - there was never a dull moment! But now, almost a year since I left campus, my position at Daraja is the job that prospective employers ask the most questions about - everything else looks like potatoes in comparison. I am blessed to have spent the time there that I did. And like everyone else whose life has been affected by this magnificent place, I long to go back.
