Culture Shock within Lifeworks

I traveled to China with a volunteer program called Lifeworks the summer before my arrival at Trinity.  The program was available to teenagers internationally. The program involved leadership building, working with local disabled children and experiencing Chinese culture through sightseeing.

The variety of backgrounds of the volunteers provided a multi-cultural feel to the entire trip. There were some people from Thialand, India, Pakistan, Singapore, New Zealand, Tibet, as well as a spread of volunteers across the US from Georgia, to the Bronx, to California. not only did the experience of Chine open my eyes to a different culture, but I experienced many different cultures through volunteering with people from all over the world.
