I was personally transformed. This experience is going to help me in more ways, probably, than I know or can say. I have definitely taken many of the lessons to heart, and I learned what I believe is the true value of helping another, simply because you can. That is not something that can be taught in a classroom—that is something that you simply have to feel. It is amazing what you can learn out there, and most of the time, ‘getting out there’ is the only way to truly learn it.
