"As a volunteer for Expanding Lives I had life experiences that helped to shape me into the person I am today. I assisted in teaching different classes and participated in cultural events. I developed strong personal bonds with these young, intelligent women, and soon I was no longer their teacher, but they were mine, as they had more to teach me about my character than I ever had to teach them. Expanding Lives was the highlight of my high school career."
