"I thought that my experience during this fundraiser seemed very important. This was the first time that I took part in fundraising for someone other than myself. It is important to realize that we came together as a class and did something that is going to impact the [life] of someone else." -Jared Parker, Sophomore Communication Major. Davis, Illinois.
"The whole process was an interesting one. Researching what we had to raise money for, asking different organizations for donations and putting the entire thing together as a unit was pretty cool." -Taylor Kendall, Sophomore Communication Major. Calumet City, Illinois.
"Reflecting on the process, the first thing that comes to mind is the community and relationships we built, not only as a class, but as a group of people who wanted to help." Brianna Robertson, Senior, Double Major (Psychology & Communication). Savanna, Illinois.
"The process of raising money for Empower Nepali Girls was a great experience. It was a great way to do a final project for a class. I like how we learned about the group and spoke to Sara even before we thought about helping out. This gave us the ability to form an opinion about the group without feeling like we had to be all for it." - Cody Schambow, Sophomore Communication Major. Platteville, Wisconsin.
"I thought the fundraiser went pretty good! I think that having Sara Safari facetime the audience was a good way to engage them. The whole experience was really awesome, because without this class, I never would 've known about the Empower Nepali Girls Organization. All the girls, no matter their circumstance deserve a chance to learn & become educated, & I think the fundraiser will help a little bit with that." - Erin Hoffman, Sophomore Communication Major. Bettendorf, Iowa.
