“I’m so glad I got to meet the EYC students and see firsthand the work EYC is doing. During my school visits, the kids were all smiles as they proudly stood up and told me their name, age, and what they like to do for fun. Some of the kids added what they hope to do when they grow up. As I listened to them I thought to myself, ‘I really hope she actually becomes a “civil engineer” or he becomes an “art teacher” one day’. I honestly believe EYC is helping them get there.
I talked with the kids about their travel dreams, favorite ice cream flavor, among other things. It was so fun to hear their answers. One student said he wants to travel to Portugal because he loves soccer. Another student said New Zealand because she wants to hike the biggest mountains. The reality of life right outside of the schools that I saw is more difficult than any kid their age should ever have to experience. Despite this, the kids were sweet and special and full of potential.”
