"It was a diverse group, but we came together even though we were working with people outside of our normal friend groups. Working with them secretly was really fun."
"Originally, I was only going to go for six months. My Spanish was improving a lot, but I wasn't as fluent as I was hoping to be so that's when I started to wonder if I could do this again."
