As we enter our last week of classes, I just wanted to take a minute to reflect on how truly amazing this season has been. As I look into different classrooms to take pictures and report on what's going on in each classroom, I can't help but notice the positive energy coursing through the room. There's nothing quite like making friends from different parts of the world. Seeing everyone together smiling and playing together is inspiring. I love to see the teachers taking on their roles seriously and being mentors to these students. The way the kids look up to our teachers makes Alkaid's work even more meaningful. I love the community found in our little village in Tianshui, the kids are the sweetest. It doesn't matter how much Chinese you can speak back to them, they just really enjoy new company.
