Journey Voices: Gabby Perez shares her experience in Greece

I have been home for a few days now, I'm still sort of fighting this jet lag, I really had no idea what it was until now. I get it, haha. I've spent the majority of the last two weeks traveling with a company called Journey, we first headed to Athens to volunteer in a refugee camp, the rest of the time was spent traveling to some of the Greek Islands. 


I had little expectations but a bit of concern for safety and acceptance was of course in the back of my head prior to entering the camp. If only I had known, I would meet and share my time with resilient, educated and truly inspiring families. It was my heart’s pleasure to be there and to be of service during that time. I keep thinking about each individual we shared our time with and how much I wish I could somehow know their fate.
