an open letter
August 29, 2008
I can’t believe my year of service as an AmeriCorps member has come to an end. It has been an enjoyable and unforgettable ride. I will miss interacting with the students, volunteers and staff on a daily basis. Thank you for letting me in!
I am having trouble finding the words to write how I feel. I have been extremely lucky to come into this organization. To hear and be a small part of the wonderful students’ growth. To watch the excitement of volunteers as they see how much their time makes a difference in so many lives in a profound way. To work with such amazing and thoughtful people – Yashna and Gardy.
A million thanks to everyone!
p.s. I won’t be far as I will still be a part of the AL community by volunteering with my inspiring student, Kiasha.
