I always wanted to change the world and even now, I still do. I was not the most popular kid in school, nor the most liked; I was mostly bullied. But despite that experience, I wanted to make a difference in the world and help others benefit from it. I began a dance club in order for kids to be a part of a new world...something that they had not experienced.
Have you ever had that feeling of helping someone out, or donating clothes, or going on a mission trip? I have and it felt amazing, giving someone hours of my time, and seeing the faces that I have helped.
Elizabeth Porras hosts an EXPERIENTIAL program over Winterbreak at her HACIENDA in Mazatlan, Mexico. Students from Dallas go to Mazatlan Mexico for two weeks of CHANGING the lives of poor children.
Professor Bob Hopkins has created an opportunity for Dallas students and adult chaperones to go to Mazatlan to the 10,000 square foot Hacienda of Elizabeth Porras. Some of the experience will be to learn Spanish, but mostly to teach English, provide back packs full of toys for children, paint a school, help clean up hurricane damage in a wrecked village and share American experiences with Mazatlan non profit organizations.
