Hear from Leslie T. about her time with CIEE

"Through my enrichment program, I learned to be grateful for the smallest things: from taking showers for as long as I wanted, to having food to eat and seeing my parents every day. When we went to Johannesburg, we learned that children who had fathers working in the mines only saw their dads three days a year. I felt so terrible that I was upset not to see my mom for a few weeks, yet these children were growing up on their own because their parents worked so many days. After that I was grateful every time I spoke to my mom.”
