First summer away from home26.06.2013
Hi, I’m Arute from Kiribati. I smile because I am really happy and enjoying my first summer in KISC. This place is so amazing, all the people are friendly, helpful and kind, especially the Pinkies. This is the first time that I have left my country, family and friends and I felt really sad and lonely when I left them, but when I arrived at KISC and spent a couple of days here I realised not only that I am still loved by my family in my country but I also have a new family of Pinkies here now as well. My favourite two things to do in KISC that make me happy are firstly meeting the guests, I feel so happy when I get to talk to people from different countries and that have different cultures. Secondly spending time with the staff here, they are all really kind, helpful, and funny.
And finally I smile because I am proud to be a pinkie. When I return to my country I will share my experiences and happiness and tell them about what a great time I have had whilst being a pinkie and smiling every day. So live your dream, just like I am, and smile.
