Our Honor Roll Program with the girls at The Belfast Model School came to an end not to long ago and it was bittersweet. Over the weeks we had together, we developed a strong relationship and bond with the ladies growing from week to week. We learned a lot from each other as well. Interacting in all types of games and activities as well as some paperwork, just to get a bit of info out of each girl individually and as a group. They learned plenty about America from us the good and bad, because they had so many questions, but we also got some insight on Northern Ireland a well which was good, like some places we definitely need to visit, and what places offer the best food and good craic.
We had the pleasure of receiving some candies and a card that thanked us, signed by all of the ladies which was extremely sweet and kind of them. Stephen also stated that this was the first time that the Victory Scholars ever received something like a gift of appreciation or whatever from one of the schools in the Honor Roll program. So that made myself, Nat, and Kristen feel extra special and let us know that maybe we did really connect with the girls! So I had the pleasure of getting to know these young ladies I appreciate them allowing us to interact with them!
