“I spent the summer rebuilding [insert community building here] in [insert name of poor country here],” said a privileged student with deep pockets. “It was so eye-opening to see poverty and do my part to yada yada yaa” I’m definitely not the only one that’s heard this statement. But here’s my piece: if you want to see […]
