Today’s World Changer: Laura Shafer

 

shaferLaura Shafer is a junior at Lauralton Hall in Milford, CT. She traveled with STW over her February spring break.

 

I loved my trip to Guatemala. This is one of my favorite photos from the trip that I thought really summed up my experience. This photo is from our last day in the community right after the Dedication Ceremony. The kids are looking through the windows at their new school and at everyone who worked to build the school during the week. There is also a boy playing with his little sister and showing her some of the decorations that were put up for the ceremony. I thought that these kids were role models to us because of how kind and selfless they were. They welcomed us into their lives and were so grateful for the work we did while we were grateful for all the great memories we made with them during the week. This was truly a life changing experience.
