I feel like my brain switched into a higher gear of understanding, as if being challenged and pushed more than I’m used to helped me grow.
I loved every minute of it, and I see my friends sharing posts about it every summer and think to myself, "If only I could go again."I have never had such powerful discussions as the ones I have had over this year’s political snafu. Having learned how to listen and delicately respond, I can get my point across in an otherwise heated argument, and even sway people to see the shortcomings of our current system. I attribute these skills to what I learned from the Great Connections seminars.
