My groupmates and I all share a special connection because of the time we all spent together. No one in my daily life– my parents, friends, or teachers, can even begin to understand the experience that was my summer in China. It is so important to me that I continue talking with my groupmates to remind myself of that experience and continue reveling in the memories.
