The retreat on Saturday was fun and not what I expected. We did many activities that helped us learn more about each other, and they also helped us understand the big picture of the LCS program. I was able to get to know my classmates better and get a feel for most of the different personalities in the cohort. It was inspiring to witness Trish talk about her book and have her show us up close how much information can be held in one picture. I shared with my partner a picture of my friend group and I from back home, and how we always take pictures of us in a polaroid picture, with a number 6 somewhere in the picture. From that picture, I told my partner more about my friends and the story of how we became friends and how we split, but then came back together. Trish was able to conclude from that picture that I am a leader. I thought it was amazing to see that from that small glimpse of my life, Trish could tell what kind of person I am. At the end of the retreat, everyone shared what they would be doing when they turn 80. I liked listening to everyone’s perspectives and taking a bit from each person’s and adding it to my own. I realized that the class is full of people who all truly care about other people, whether it be their family or people that they just want to help. Everyone is very inspiring and I hope to grow and mature while taking this class with them.
