Teaching children taught me so much

“I’m ready to put my traditions and values on hold, so I can see the world through someone else’s eyes and gain a whole new meaning to life. So exciting to call this place my home for the next month.”

I believe that sometimes you must immerse yourself in an unfamiliar world in order to truly understand your own. Laos is a country full of love, kindness and humbleness. I have found peace knowing that the work I do benefits a lot of young minds.



I teach a children’s class at the local library, where I meet the most beautiful souls with the brightest smiles. It’s always going to be a great day if you start it with singing, dancing and playing.

You learn so much about yourself, being surrounded by such appreciative people. You begin to build a habit of thankfulness and a lot of things to be thankful for.



My words don’t even come close to encapsulating how amazing it was to have the opportunity to teach such incredible children and to be able to spend a whole month with the most down to earth people. I have so much respect for the work that GVI does. For offering such a life changing program.

Also, to every person that made the experience what it was, I’ll never be able to thank you enough.
