Love Being a Role Model

Monday was our first day with the kids! It was so much fun to meet them all and get to hang out with them. I get to "mentor" four of the kids, and it's super cool to get the opportunity to have them look up to me! They only met me today and they already think the world of me. The way the kids look up to all of the interns and mentors is very surprising. They are so open to new people that it makes me want to be more like them. They want to hug everyone and sit in our laps and get piggy back rides. They are just so happy that you wish you could be with them all the time. I don't want to leave!
