Language Buddies

1. I hope to be able to make a lasting impact on the kids through my leadership and personality, and also through my teaching. I also hope to gain a closer relationship with the community of St. Peter and feel myself become more a part of it.
2. I feel I can offer myself, as a supportive and understanding member of Gustavus. I hope that they will feel comfortable with me and that I can be a friend to all. Also, if needed, I will be more than happy to help in any English/Spanish interactions that may need to be translated.
3. I believe I could benefit in gaining community service time and feeling a deeper connection with this community. I also would like to expand my teaching skills, with language specifically. Lastly, I hope to create lasting memories through this unique volunteer opportunity!
4. For me, intercultural competence means acquiring the knowledge and skills to respectfully and productively communicate and bond with people of other cultures. When I was in Peru over J-term, I had the opportunity to be exposed to people from very different socio-economic and cultural backgrounds, and through that continuous exposure and creation of friendships, I learned more in depth what it meant to overcome differences and how to respectfully and genuinely interact with people coming from completely different backgrounds than me.

Matching Event!

Today I got to meet my little partner and her family! Her name is Alayna Hawker, and her little sister is also involved in the BPLP program. We got to know each other, played volleyball and basketball, and drew some pictures. It was a good meeting and I'm excited to be her big partner!
