Sing-and-dance lead Gino and RC, both part of the NCA Leadership Journey Batch 2, narrated their experience during the activitiy: “It was yet another superb experience with my Journey family at the Loyola Heights Children’s Day. We taught around a hundred kids how to dance and told them stories. Tiring but REALLY fulfilling”, RC shared in her Facebook status. Despite some difficulties, Gino hoped that the group was able to bring joy to the children, “Kahit nakakapagod, sana napasaya natin sila kahit sa maliit na paraan” (Even if it’s tiring, I hope we were able to make them happy even in our small way).
