Sixteen students traveled to San Francisco to participate in the BreaksAway program.
The students volunteered at Glide, an organization that works with the homeless, and served more than 6,000 meals during Spring Break. Among these students were three international students: Hisham from Indonesia, Ji Yun from South Korea and Amy from Taiwan. Hisham describes his experience as life changing, fun and inspiring. " It made me more thankful for what I have. I also made new friends and got to see San Francisco", said Hisham.
