    It was amazing to increase my social responsability this summer!I performed 9 lectures about education and peace to more than 1300 children in Brazil. Those children have different background and levels of education, but all of them had one thing in common: the power to change the world. And that’s exactly what I talked about in the lectures! Giving them motivation to believe that nothing is impossible when you work hard and have positive attitutes towards yourself and others. The response from them was amazing, and more than ever I believe the world is changing for the better. (PS.: I want my next set of lectures to reach more than 20.000 people and keep increasing!!)Fandm is definitely developing my social character even further. Being part of this community makes me more active and hungry to work for a more peaceful world. Can’t wait to keep doing volunteering/social works, and I hope that everyone around me feel the same desire to help other people as much as we want to help ourselves.Together we can make a better world!!

    For a pre-orientation program, I arrived on campus a few days early and participated in PIT (Putting It Together).  We got to help the community of Lancaster through Pet Pantry (where they rescue, feed, and fix animals), and also participate in some super fun activities, such as bowling, Hershey Park, laser tag, picking fresh fruit, color wars, and a scavenger hunt.  This program was definitely worth it, and I would recommend it to any new first year student!
