Alex: Participating in Project Shine has shown me many things that I would have not thought possible. One example of this is how quickly the students bonded with the teachers. In my class, the students opened up and accepted us strangers from foreign lands. Within the first day, the students became something like family. One of my students, Trevor, as a parting gift, wrote to me “I hope you can remember me forever. Because we are family, eternal family”.
Jeff (Right in photo): From Project Shine I learned that the students there were dedicated to their studies and they don’t except failing. Most of them want to go to universities to help their families because of how they are poor. Also, I learned that they treasure their relationships. Once you get to know them, they are truly cheerful to be around.
