I was a champion for 2 years in 2017 and 2018. I was inspired to go to Antigua my first year because of the way Jo spoke about the program. Her passion shone through and I wanted to see for myself what it was all about. As soon as I arrived to my school my first year I knew I would return. Upon arriving I felt overwhelming happy.

One of my most cherished memories was from my second year. There was a student in kindergarten that would always want to hang out with us during the breaks. One day he showed up with envelopes, he gave each of us an envelope and inside it contained a birthday invitation with his scribbling. It truly touched my heart the fact that he wanted his teachers to be present at his birthday party even though we only knew him for a short period of time.

My time in Antigua solidified my passion for teaching and inspired me to pursue a career in education internationally. This truly is a life changing experience 💕
