My understanding of the world was affected by participating in a CISV Village because I realized that even though we come from totally different places we are all human. Though we are all different, we can be friends. An activity during Village that taught me a lot was rich & poor day. This had a big effect on me because I never realized how badly poor people suffered. I will live my life differently because I know many people and I know about different cultures. The best part was meeting people from around the world. One of my best memories was making up a song with a girl from Denmark. I’d like to tell future delegations to be themselves and enjoy every moment.
