One service experience that stood out to me this year was mentoring a group of middle school students with Cynthia. We took the group to Chelsea Piers. At first the small group of middle school students and mentors were very shy around each other. However once we got to the bowling rink they started to open up to us. Over bowling we were able to talk about school, interests, friends and much more. I found this experience so rewarding because it is rare, as an upper school student, to interact with younger students in such a comfortable environment. This service brought both my peers and myself closer to younger students in our community, while still having a good time.
