When I first heard about Doxa and its mission, I merely saw it as a volunteering opportunity. However, the few days that I spent in Mexico meant much more than any other volunteering I had done. Not only was the trip enjoyable, but I also learned a lot about different lifestyles and how I am fortunate to lead the life I live. This volunteering opportunity was actually an eye-opening event. After building the house, I felt extremely proud of my work and was grateful for having been given this opportunity.
