How did this experience affect your view and attachment to the South Bend/ Elkhart region?

This experience helped me understand some of the necessities that the Elkhart region has and how people can help the community. There are a lot of ways that people can get involved and help their own community. 

What was the most rewarding experience in the program? 

The most rewarding experience in the program was that I had the opportunity to meet new people and interact more with the community where I live. I met awesome college students that helped me and also taught me how to solve multiple problems without making a big-confusing process.
