"There is something incredibly magical about being invited into someone’s home, learning about a new culture, experiencing and learning from people whose lives are so different to our own. The charity workers and NGOs were doing such amazing work, and where we found tremendous hardship, we also found resilience, hope, and smiles - so many smiles. It inspired me to do more, and to be thankful for what I have."
