Testimonial:

"On a side-panel on the service learning page, put this testimonial "​My experience with A Breeze of Hope changed my life. Trauma and compassion has a universal language. I spoke no Spanish but my heart was held by every person I met. I experienced immense healing from my own childhood and high school experience with sexual violence and it all came through this love so deeply determined to survive it's will surpassed language barriers. I wept, I wrote, I worked, I ate, I slept, and for the first time in my life I slowly began to feel the ground beneath me again.

 

Not only did I heal but I learned. I learned how to be humble, how to be uncomfortable and watch beauty blossom from that. My days there were full. Even the hard ones. I credit this trip to the beginning of my choice to pursue healing and it radically changed my approach to advocacy. I left empowered and overwhelmed by the resilient lives in Bolivia. I've never heard laughter so loud, tasted fruit so sweet, seen mountains so awesome, or met people so kind. The act of touch was redeemed for me, silence and stillness gained meaning outside of fear, and this trip gave me one of my best friends. This trip has the capacity to shape you whether or not you are a survivor of sexual violence."
