Day 20: Officially Getting Started on Service Learning
In my Day 15 journal, I wrote about finding a starting service learning partner. However, it turns out that Mr. Ming was not available to do service learning with us every day. Therefore, we decided to talk to Yang Nai Nai, who's daughter-in-law is one of my local contacts, Mrs. Zhang. She is 80 years old, and is a great grandmother! Vincent, Jackie, Charissa, and I had lots of fun talking to her. Since she only speaks the Bai dialect, Mrs. Zhang helped us translate (see picture). She had some really interesting points to tell us about her life here in Xizhou. I am super happy to say that she agreed to be our service learning partner, and I am really excited to begin working with her tomorrow.
