While I am in Vietnam I will have the opportunity to help take care of orphan children and children suffering from HIV. The impact that I will have on this communtiy and that this communtiy will have on me will be truely life changing. There is nothing more in the entire universe that I want as much as being able to serve a communtiy that has nothing and to bring joy to children who may otherwise never have had any. I have never been overseas and I am so blessed that the first time I will be I will be to help others in need.
The best part about this whole trip is that I will be going over Christmas, my winter break. I will get to spread love and joy to the Vietnamese people over the holidays.
I chose to volunteer in Vietnam not only becuse of the children I will be helping, but also because what I will experience in Southeast Asia will be unlike anything I would experience at home, and something most people will never experience in their lifetime.
