My Memorable 2016 Winter Break – By Vuochnear Ly
Skiing is not an easy thing to do. For the first time, you have to fall and get up to go ahead. It is not different from life that once you get to do something out of your comfort zone, you may face obstacles and failures, but you need to give yourself more chance to get up and give it another try.
Other memorable moments for me with Kristin and the family were gift unwrapping, singing all the Christmas songs, playing trivia, and listening to Hamilton soundtrack. Listening to Hamilton was our favorite activity and we could learn more about American history.
The trip was truly unforgettable and I could not have asked for more fun than the trip to Bend.
Even though we didn’t get to do many outdoor things, we spent time watching movies about the World History in the twentieth-century, which was a fun way to learn more about history.
The most exciting thing was that I got to see GIRAFFES, which are one of my favorite animals. Never in my life had I seen real giraffes.
I’m so grateful for this because when I went to the California Academy of Science earlier that year, I saw giraffe models and I was imaging if one day I could see giraffes in real life.
Ultimately, Michelle made my dreams come true!
I also watched movies as well and, by that time in my trip, I had a growing list of favorite movies. Since then, I have entertained myself by finding new favorite movies to add to my list.
I also had fun staying with Paula, where she helped to teach me more about guitar!
After living with each of them, I came to realize that they all have different ways of living, yet they all have the same kind hearts.
I am so thankful to SHE-CAN team and sisters and that I could experience these incredible things in my life.
Finally, I would love to thank my mentor team for their warm welcoming and caring.
Without their kind hearts, I would not be able to have this memorable time and of course, could not tell this story.
