Dear Dr. Gousse, Dr. Merisier, and Ms. Toussaint,

I had so many great weeks in my life but the week at Washington DC was the greatest one. I have always dreamed to see the place where our president is living and with the help of so many strangers I went there and really enjoyed myself. I would like to thank every and each one of you that helped me get to Washington DC and meet so many different people and visit so many historical places. Since the first day I got to DC, my mind already told me that this week at DC was going to be the best week ever.

Being at Washington DC was like a challenge for me because we were divided into workshops and all the workshops competed to be the best workshop. The students at our hotel were from four different places but most of us were from Miami. It was so much fun to work with students from different schools and different states. Every day we had different activities, we went to different places and visited different historical places.

The second day when I woke up, I looked at my schedule and I knew this day was going to be a fun day and it sure was a fun day for real even though it was rainy. We did a lot of walking going from place to place. The third day was amazing without any rain, it was kind of warm and I took so many pictures on that day especially at the Lincoln Memorial. I saw where Martin Luther King Junior gave his “I Have a Dream” speech. The Capitol Hill day was kind of cold and we walked the most on that day. On Thursday we went to a theater. It was amazing. Friday was very sad because it wasn’t cool at all to say goodbye to an amazing week like that.

If I could meet all of you who helped me with the money, I would thank you from the bottom of my heart for this amazing week. I am hoping to go back to DC and have a chance to see the president with my own eyes.


That’s my dream.
