Reisverslag Day four
30 april 2015
Today I learned a lot, I mean a lot. Otis was with us the entire day. He started talking and he kept talking for 5 hours. But we didn't get bored, not once. He told us why education is so important in life. He didn't finish school and he ended up cleaning in the sport areas. He gave us a lot of motivation to pursue our dreams and that only you can do it. He told us a couple of stories about his life. He is originally from Jamaica, it hasn't been easy for him. He told us that this work experience was not to let us work, but to show us what we don't want to do in life. To show us why our education is so important and that we shouldn't take it for granted. Everything he said made sense and it really motivated me. I'm sure that I won't forget Otis. We only had to do one small job today and that was cleaning with a cloth. It really didn't take long but Otis wanted to show us what such a job is like. Today was a real eye-opener. I didn't expect it at all but I appreciate it a lot. Now I realize that I want to graduate, go to college and get my degree. I want to be a determined, stong and independent woman. I'm really thankful for this day. It will take this memory back home and I will keep it with me for the rest of my life.
At half past one we were done and we went back to our cottage. Later Jacey, Justin and I hit the gym.

Mooi geschreven...Zo zie je hoe een persoonlijk verhaal van iemand je kan raken en kan helpen om zelf je keuzes te maken.
Geniet nog van de dagen die voor je liggen. Tot dinsdag!
Groetjes mama x
