“I’ve worked as an individual before, and in a whole organization, but I really liked working on a team that was like a little family.  It’s been a really unique experience for me.  The team is trying to help integrate all people from all backgrounds to come together for peacemaking.  I think that’s quite rare in this modern day, with all the rising sentiments of separation.”
