DYLC Prompt HC#7 What are you learning about your host city’s sub theme?

By: Muntadher Alsaeed.

I learned lots of things so far this great program , and when i get this nice city -Bozeman,MT- I learned new things about the environment leadership , team work, and activities .

Me and my group volunteered with an NGO to protect the animals in some fields by changing some old wires and we did our best and after that i really felt more respectful for the environment and I learned that even the small things that we might not think of it but it could effect on the environment in anyway .

from watching Bozeman environment I recognized that when the people respect the nature the nature would give them a lot and when they don’t care about it it would be destroyed and the hole life would destroy after it because it’s the only resource of the life.

And also i recognized that in every environment that there is a good side that we all see it and there is a bad sad side that not all of us know about it !! for example here in Bozeman the is lots of smoke surrounding the city because of one of the bad things that effect on out nature , and I saw a really nice lake contain nice colorful fishes but there were lots of trash inside it that effect on the fishes life !! so we should view the natures from all the sides and we should recognize that in every nature there is the nice side and the sad side !! 

and i learned lots of more things about speeches and posters and making shorts movies and lots of new things but i don’t have much time to write it all down here .

Prompts :)

Hi all! My name is Niara, I am 15 and live in DC. Its been difficult for me to post prompts because of computer issues so I’ll be answering a few prompt questions.

3. I was born in a small college town in Ohio then moved to DC seven years ago. I love the fact that I have been raised in both places. Growing up in Ohio was nice because I got to run around in mud, in fields and be adventurous with friends. I was able to spark my passion for adventuring. When I moved to DC it was a TOTAL culture shock. First, I had never been in a place where I couldn’t count the number of other African American students who went to my school on my hands. And suddenly I was I’m possible. Also no one said hi to each other when walking by, I was not used to ignoring people as they walk by. But as I got used to this transition, I got involved in more. I was able to find many opportunities in DC that would never be available to a student in Ohio. Im so thankful that my mother moved us to DC. Here is a mini list of what I have been able to do living in DC. -Take an Arabic class -Work with a non-profit that helps Syrian refugees -Participate in HOBY -Go to an amazing school -And participate in IYLEP!!!

8+9. I am soo so so super excited for this trip!! I cant wait to meet everyone. I am expecting to meet tons of great people and think and discuss different topics with them. My only concern is living with my host family, but Im sure they will be nice.

12. My mom is ready for me to go on this trip. In the summer I usually travel to my dad in Chicago. So she is used to me being gone in the summer. I am sooo ready. I usually pack at 3am before I leave but I packed 3 days early so Im super excited and ready.

I can not wait to meet everyone!! I hopes everyone has a safe trip, see you all soon :)

10) Take a “selfie” showing how you feel with the trip so close!
It’s getting closer, as in only few days left and it just keeps getting more dream-like, you know? Like all this is just a dream, that nothing is real. They say that some things are often too good to be true and now it feels like this is one of these things. I’m afraid that I’ll wake up any moment to find that all this has been a dream, the planning, the stories, the places..everything. It seems my mind still hasn’t registered what is going on.

Hellow everyone :)  
For now I feel super excited, because its only 2 or 3 days left for the trip. Im very busy with packing :D which is super annoying because whenever I say Im done a few minutes after that I add up another piece to my lauggage! 
As Im getting ready to the trip, even my friends and my family are also very excited. At the same time they are kind of upset because I wouldnt be around for around one month.
The selfie above was taken yesterday when my friends decided to meet up before I leave so we had dinner together  !
