One of our Community Impact Project volunteers- Blessing from Pérez Zeledón, San José, Costa Rica- shares about her experience building community on a virtual platform and the speaking English regularly with native speakers! Learn about the Community Impact Project here.
One day, a former teacher from my English course sent us some information about the Community Impact Project. I checked it out, and it seemed like everything I wanted to do!
The organization running this project was AMIGOS, an organization that I didn’t known very well, but as I learned more, I had some great expectations.
- Someone who we had learned from,
- Someone who´d made us laugh,
- Someone we admired,
- Someone who was smiley,
- Someone who was positive,
- Someone we were going to miss,
- Someone who speak up first, and more!
But AMIGOS is a community where you can feel the sentiment of belonging to something whether virtual or face-to-face. Everyone warmly welcomes you and you really feel a part of something important quicker than you think.
In the Community Impact Project, I learned that everyone is willing to learn and teach.
Thank you Blessing for sharing your experience! Learn more about our Community Impact Project here.
