With this being my second year as a SYFI (Summer Youth Facilitation Institute) member at the Gandhi Institute, I am excited and ready for everything this summer and the Gandhi staff have in store for me. Being able to come here and be a facilitator for a second time is an overwhelming feeling. I will be able to extend my learning of nonviolence as a facilitator and I will have a chance to improve my leadership skills. I’m more than pleased with their decision of adding me back to their already amazing staff.
This summer I want to be able to take away some of the wisdom of my coworkers and create new memories with them even better than the ones from last year. This is an amazing opportunity that anyone could have had the chance to do but they chose me. I am beyond grateful that I have the chance to bring love and happiness back into the community with my community.
