My summer in India was truly the opportunity of a lifetime. Spending time in both the villages of Melghat and the busy city Pune enabled me to see such different aspects of Indian culture. I thoroughly enjoyed living so simply in the village of Chilati where we got to play with the most adorable kids ever in the evenings while devoting our efforts to our projects during the day. Back in Pune I stayed with the best host family I could of hoped for and learned so much from them. More than anything else I miss the people I left back in India. I will always remember the meaningful relationships we formed with our translators, the ACM staff, the children we worked with, and our host families which formed such a critical part of our time in India. I am so grateful for my ability to have participated in this ACM program, which has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences of my life.
