Storyboard Text

  • I have been waiting to go on this service trip for months, but now I am unsure if I can make my time here worth it
  • It only now occurred to me that I spoke little to no Spanish compared to the local people and I would have trouble communicating with them
  • Bienvenido!
  • Whatsup?
  • I attempted to communicate with the locals, but failed miserably
  • ???
  • What do you like to do for fun?
  • I envied my peers who were easily able to connect with the kids we were serving
  • I laid on bed for nearly an hour that night, thinking long and hard of any way I could break the language barrier dividing me from the kids in my village… nothing
  • Perro Pateado!
  • Fútbol?
  • When I missed the ball, the kids started kicking me! 
  • Perro pateado means they kick you when you miss the ball!
  • I was finally connecting with the kids, I had accomplished my goal of overcoming the language and social barrier
  • I left Mexicali overjoyed, excited to return next year
