Hello GG fans!
We made it to our new home in San Cristobal. My name is Jatnna Garcia, and I’m the Site Manager in town, and I was also modeling the El Lider del Día role.
Today, we woke up in Santo Domingo, and then we traveled to San Cristobal. We had seminars, where we learned about culture, safety, and history and then we went out on a City Tour. It was amazing to see the city of San Cristobal from different eyes. It was like seeing everything for the first time again, with a heart full of pride and love for the amazing things this site has to offer. Our brave Glimpsers also reminded me of when I first traveled to the state of Utah in the U.S to pursue my bachelors. I was close to their age and I can relate to being in a completely new place.
At the beginning of the city tour, we were received by the Dominican Local Youth Ambassadors. These ambassadors are around our Glimpsers age and have committed themselves to show the value of San Cristobal; it was my rose for today. I kept learning how we are so alike in many ways, and that when we unite, we can accomplish so much more in life.
When we came back from the city tour, it was amazing to see how this first interaction with the community, and the people, made such a great impact on our Glimpsers. Jessica loved to see children dancing from outside of the bus and waving at us. I can fully say that this journey, will change our perspective of the outside world, and I’m filled with excitement and joy to see what we will all be learning day by day.
