I honestly didn’t expect much but to my surprise

Walking into Access Bank on the first day, I honestly didn’t expect much but to my surprise, I enjoyed it immensely. I got home that first day, begging my parents to allow me go for the rest of the week.

The atmosphere was relaxed yet engaging. I was taken aback by how kind and friendly everyone was. It was one of the most interesting, funny memorable days of my life. I have learnt all about changing the world around me. I have been enlightened in many ways. This program has been very inspirational and I wish I could experience it one more time.

In my mind, I have no doubt that my week at Bloom will have a lasting effect on my character and in my ability to stay true to my values. Not to mention the food was great!
