During the ‘deep listening’ [session] before my departure, I expressed [my] heartfelt gratitude to my friends. I thanked them for helping me regain my passion which had been fading away during my college years… Now I’m bringing this passion back, to pass it on to others… The Sunshine Camp is such magic, gather[ing] people from far apart to experience a feast of activity, communicating and sharing. It makes friendship grow rapidly as well as deeply, and make people trust each other.
l am very thankful for the wonderful and amazing camp, especially the lectures. l learn a lot and understand more about my purpose, my passion and my value. Thank you very much!
I have more profoundly realized that when a person wants to have the so-called “leadership” or “success”, it is most important to hold a caring heart, that is, to hold a servant mentality. It is a prerequisite for integrity (consistency) and leadership. It’s been a month since the summer camp, but our connections are never broken. From this big family, I have learned to change myself, influencing the people around me.
Full of encouragement and love, I will come back to be a volunteer.
Before the camp, I was worried that I could not integrate into the group because my spoken English was not good enough, but I didn’t expect to get so close with my teammates on the first day. There is no need to pretend [to be someone else] here. Everyone has a heart of love, humility and tolerance. I have learned a lot from other people…… SIC has brought us benefits and help, and we hope that we can pass this sunshine of SIC [onto others]
The SIC experience is inspiring, and it helped me to trust people and be open to others.
