“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” ―H. Jackson Brown Jr.
This line best describes the successful event that effectively connected our SMEAG students with Filipino families! All the participants had an amazing time swimming, riding the banana boat, playing games and getting to know each other.
This experience, however, was not all about having fun because everyone had the inspiration to learn about the stories of each family as well. With English as the only language which helped build communication between them, the students were able to make use of what they learned in class. This activity sheds light to create bonds, forming friendships and learning to share each other's struggles.
