It is very difficult to condense these last three wonderful, crazy, challenging weeks into a few sentences. The camp has opened my eyes to so many things- both good and bad. First of all, I have even surprised myself when I think about how much I enjoyed working with the children of Askar.
I honestly think that Palestinian children are the most energetic and enthusiastic children in the world! I also appreciate the bravery, honesty and frankness the people here have demonstrated by sharing their personal stories with us. Before I left Ireland to travel here, a friend advised me that once you come to Palestine you will feel compelled to come back. That is so true and I hope to return to Palestine to live and work one day. It has been an honor to meet so many incredible people here. Palestine will always have a special place in my heart.
