Kai Guevara Service Learning Trip

When I grow up, I aspire to be a Civil Rights Attorney. I want to fight for, and help people with less privilege than I have been given throughout my life. Because of this, I have created a goal for myself in order to start my journey in helping others in need. I have a goal to travel to Tanzania, Africa with an organization called “Global Leadership Adventures,” that takes high schoolers abroad to study, and volunteer in local communities in order to help them realize the privilege that they have, and build their character.

On this trip, the other high schoolers and I will be sleeping in shacks in a small, isolated community in Africa. We will be fully emerged into the Tanzanian culture, while also taking courses on Swahili language, agriculture in developing countries, and inequality. On weekdays, I will be volunteering at the local elementary school and teaching the children of this community basic English, as well as refurbishing their classrooms and other hands on activities to help the children of this community be more successful as they get older.

I have dreams to making a change in this world, and I strongly feel like this is a great way to start. I believe that this trip could help inspire me to thrive in my future profession, as well as heavily shape my character into the best person I can be. This could really teach me the importance of life, privilege, and give me awareness on so many problems of our world, and possibly solutions. This is truly a life changing experience and I am willing to give up a lot so I can go on this trip. I have been saving up for as long as I can remember, although the deadline for the trip is approaching faster than I thought. Please help me reach my goal so I will be able to help for a better future in me, and my peers in my generation. Thank you for your time.
