Stories from participants
2014 YOUTH PEACE AND CULTURAL EDUCATION PROGRAM IN ETHIOPIA
This past week at Sac State has prepared me to be unprepared for our trip. During the past few days, Pam and Predko have showed us how important trust and communication will be during the upcoming month. They have also showed us the inevitability of conflict and discomfort. Attending these seminars helped me to not only accept this, but they have also prepared me to handle any given situation in the most mature way possible.
