Mr. Fink,

I cannot begin to describe to you how much of an impact this trip has had on my life. As I continue to reflect on the past few weeks, I’m realizing more and more how much this experience has truly changed me as a person.

Surprising as it may be, I actually sat in my room each night after bed check and thought about how hard it must’ve been to arrange each day for us. Because of the staff’s meticulous attention to detail, I was able to get the absolute best out of every day.

From the bottom of my heart, I’d like to express how truly thankful I am towards you and the other chaperones for creating such an incredible and smoothly run trip for me. I feel so blessed to have been instilled with the knowledge and lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I went into this trip a spoiled brat, and left the most appreciative I’ve ever been.

For many reasons, Europe was the most eye opening experience I’ve ever had. I will never forget it, and for that, again, I thank you.

My most thankful regards,

Rachel Shaver
