¿Que onda prix? Today the Jinotega Crew went to the local high schools to experience what it’s like to live the life of a Nicaraguan high schooler. It was amazing, we’re in a foreign country, yet it was still so familiar to us. The students are the friendliest. When we walked in, everyone was eager to get to know us. My group members had nothing but positive things to say about how their days went. It really surprised me how different the classes are here in Nicaragua. Instead of the students traveling between classrooms, the teachers came to us. Despite the lack of textbooks and technology, everyone was excited about learning, quickly scribbling down the important points of the teacher’s lectures. I wish we could provide these scholars with the resources that we enjoy back home. Being the first Student Leader of the Day was not as difficult as I expected. Keeping track of 18 teenagers wasn’t as hectic as I imagined! I learned that I’m capable of more than I expect of myself. I’m proud of my group mates for tackling this first challenge with an open-mind and an open-heart. I’m looking forward to spending the next 2 weeks together!
