  1. Overall, this experience has changed my life for the better. When people ask me about this trip it is hard to explain exactly what I experienced or what I was able to take in without getting emotional. No one else can truly understand what feeling I am talking about unless you have attended this trip.

  2. This trip honestly made a huge impact on my life, as I was able to see the different situations going on in the world. Talking about the trip to others is always a great feeling, but no story is able to do this service trip justice. I highly encourage everyone to try their best to attend the service trip, it is such an amazing experience that no words can fully define.

  3. This trip was absolutely life changing. Thank you so much to all of the teachers that made this possible1 (Consul, Bernie, Al, Merele and Marie). Also thanks to all of the lovely PH fam for making this incredible. Lastly thank you to everyone who helped me be there, my family and friends who donated. Thank you!

  4. I feel truly blessed to be able to embark on this journey with such an amazing people. No words can describe my service trip to the Philippines. Thank you to Sir Consul, Al, and Marie and thank you for the people who made this trip truly unforgetable. #CANTSTOPTHEFEELING ❤︎

  5. This trip was more of a life changing experience than I can imagine. From all the experiences we had, to meeting and bonding all the children, there was never a dull moment. The opportunity to bond with each other, become close and experience things together was amazing. It’s unbelievable to think that i didn’t know most of these amazing people until the trip. I embarked on this trip thinking that I would be of service to others, but it turns out that it was me who ended up getting the most out of it, especially thanks to all the amazing people we met there, all the children, and everyone who supported us on this journey!

  6. This trip overall was life changing. I wouldn’t do anything differently. The bonds I have made within my school when fundraising, to the relationships I built with communities, to the friendships I have now will forever be in my heart. I always find my way back to thinking about this trip. This trip really has my heart and will always influence me wherever I go. I really hope I get the opportunity to find myself doing something like this again!

  7. Looking back at this experience it’s so amazing to think about how much has changed. I feel like this trip truly did change my life and I can’t imagine what I would be doing if I didn’t go on this adventure 6 months ago!
