Day 22: Finding a New Service Learning Partner (Again!)
Today has been a very full day with so many ups and downs along the way. Today was the day when we were supposed to finish our filming for Service Learning. After lunch, Max, Justin, Angelesia, and I all headed over to our Service Learning partner's house. Just yesterday, she had agreed to be our partner, and said that we could come today to film. When we entered the house, she came up to us and told us that she knows someone who lives uphill, and would love to talk to us. She then said that she has no more time to help us film, and said she can not be our partner anymore. We then headed over to another area in which we met another nai nai. We talked to her for some time, and asked for her to be our Service Learning partner. She then told us that she was leaving Xizhou tomorrow, and does not know when she will return. We then left her place, and were unable to decide who would become our Service Learning partner. We thought that we should go and talk to Yan Ayi, since Angelesia already has a very strong connection with her. We went over to her house, and talked to her for a long time, and I really enjoyed having a conversation with her. However, once we left, we found she was unable to be a Service Learning partner since she is too young. On our way back from Yan Ayi's house, we stopped by Yang Nai Nai to talk. While we were talking, her younger sister stopped by, and talked to us for some time. We then went over to her shop, and asked her to be our Service Learning partner, and she said yes! Today has been a day filled with ups and downs, but I am still very happy with the end result! We have finally found a Service Learning partner!
