Wow, where to begin?!?  After my time at Shababeek, I’m able to watch movies and tv, and (much better than that!) participate fully in life in Arabic.  The journey getting there through Shababeek was SO AWESOME.  I laughed more in the last year and a half than any time in my whole life, and I’ve made so many incredible friends.  I am truly sad to be finishing up full-time at Shababeek, and it will forever be one of the most special experiences of my life.
