Junior Dustin Shelton of Kannapolis
- What was your favorite experience on this trip?
“My favorite experience was getting to create music with so many wonderful people in such gorgeous and historic spaces. Being part of a group I can take pride and joy in has made this trip amazing.”
- How has your perspective changed on this trip?
“Singing for others has changed my perspective of the world. Media teaches us from birth to fear and hate people different from ourselves. Having the opportunity to spend time with people from other countries has allowed me to be more accepting and has given me hope for the future of human relations.”
- What have you learned through your experiences?
“I have learned a lot about culture in general. Different countries have different customs and traditions. I enjoyed seeing how different France, Switzerland, Germany and Austria are from America. However, I also learned that despite separate cultures and different languages, people are still people. We all have hopes and dreams and we all have people we love and care about.”
