“For me I found that the Festival of Friendship was very exciting. Going there allowed me to get out of my shell and interact with people. I also learned a lot about subjects such as human trafficking, which I now want to know more about. I also was amazed at how many people came, even though some people may have not been religious. My favorite part was the concert because I really love music, especially instrumental.
I came all ready to work hard because I like to work hard for other people, but the work wasn’t that hard and I received a lot more than I gave.”
