"I would say one of the big things I've noticed is a maturity about what she needs to do as far as prepare herself for college--stepping up, doing what she needs to do. I don't know if it was being in a college environment. I have also noticed a willingness to experience new things. I know you went to temples, churches, ate different types of food. Creating relationships with people should wouldn't ordinarily do. When in the past she would shy away, now she's like 'yeah I'll do it.' Also, she has opened her eyes to world issues, and how she feels she plays a part. There is more of an awareness. It was just a great experience. She thoroughly enjoyed herself. I'm sure she won't forget."
