How can a younger child be a role model for me?

It has been 6 months since I returned from El Salvador and I count the days until I go back again next year. Andrea was one of the family members of the house I helped build in 2018. When I left El Salvador that year, I didn’t know if I would ever see her again and if I did see her would she remember me. Her family lives 5 miles from a post office so we couldn’t even be pen pals. To my delight, when I returned this year in 2019 she not only remembered me but greeted me with warm smiles and a big hug. When it was time for me to say goodbye, I was crying and she comforted me that things would be ok and we would see each other soon. I am taking Spanish in school so we can speak to each other better next year. When I go to college, I plan to return to El Salvador and help the people there. There is so much need there. They are strong, kind and humble people. I hope to continue to make a difference in El Salvador as Andrea has made a difference to me.
