Marcos Gonzales, PT Corps Member at Casa Linda
The moment I arrived at SMU for Project Transformation, I knew something special was going to happen this summer. During all my years living in Dallas, I have never seen or experienced being around such a diverse group of people. As the days go by, I am starting to realize how loving and accepting everyone is here. Everyone I meet and talk to embrace me from the first time we speak. More than anything, so far I have realized that this place is the reason I am changing as a person. The reason why my conversations with people when I go back home on the weekends have changed slightly. It is different and the feeling this place brings about in me is like nothing I have ever felt before. It’s unfamiliar, but I love it and I know there is nothing but great things to come. I look forward to building and carrying on these relationships that I am making past this summer.
