We are all forced to remember that nothing worth its time and energy is easy, and when the camp is over and we return to our normal lives, we will be new and improved versions of ourselves. We will all share a bond, a lesson, and an experience of spending three weeks together in Rwanda, missing our homes and families, but having created a new family, too.
I had the idea that when I went to college, I would major in math. I did well another couple of years. However, in the 7th grade I had a dull older professor who perpetuated the "girls can't do math" myth. Once I had questions, it was decided that I couldn't "do math." I didn't "get it" immediately because I'm a girl. End of math career.
