While gaining these experiences, I learned that Thai people go through a lot of hardship and hard work in order to make money to feed their family. This made me think that I am fortunate to have a good job in the USA and a house that I can sleep in every night. Sometimes we take things for granted and never think about other people that live in poor countries.
Going to Thailand made me think twice about how I live life and how I should do my best not to complain too much and be grateful for what I have.
In Thailand, I was happy because it opened up new things for me and taught me to be happy with what I have and never take things for granted. My trip overall was amazing and life changing in so many ways. I am so grateful for having had the opportunity and happy that I was able to teach the kids, even if it was for just four weeks. Honestly, I miss them, full of energy every morning that I showed up to teach them and eager to learn.
