From my time at SBCLTR FSTVL. I spent most of my time around a camp fire until the sun rose, talking to people who were visiting from Russia, Ukraine, Iran, India, and Armenia to name a few. I felt as if this intimate gathering of people became a small community but each individual was represented by a country far from expected. To me, each person never felt like a stranger and I felt a unique sense of pride and belonging within such a diverse crowd of humans. Another step towards hope.
