BMHS senior, Matt Nuñez, took on a senior service project that has attracted a great deal of interest, as he traveled to Spain where he served immigrant children.
Matt’s thoughts are shared below:
“My senior service project involved me going to Spain for four weeks to work at a children’s camp for immigrants. I spent my time in the city of Burgos and worked with other college-age Spaniards while taking Spanish classes, breaking down the issue of immigration, and of course deepening my faith. I interacted with people from over 20 different countries spread over five continents and found a new network of people to discuss world issues with. It was an intimidating adventure when I first set out on it, but I was comforted by the fact that I was being shared to do good by God’s will, and I learned what that truly meant. The heavy planning and luck that it took to carry this out is something that I don’t take for granted, but I don’t believe I wasted. Despite being away from family, friends, and everything else back home for two months, I found myself enjoying every minute and I got so much more out of it than a service project, which, to me, is perfect.”
