In 8th grade, we went to ShiMenShan, a beautiful mountain trip with amazing and stellar views. Throughout the trip, I feel like I really demonstrated Service. Throughout the wall, my friend and I were scared at certain parts. However, we kept helping each other and pushing on, despite how scared we were. But I still think I struggled with communication. During the raft building, I didn’t talk with my group much due to the fact that they were not talking to me. I still think I can work on that. Overall, I give the ShiMenShan trip 3/5.
