Kristin Howell, a College of Business student who also works for the Denver Campus’ Community Leadership Institute (CLI), spent her 10-day trip in Ethiopia at a compound run by Project Mercy, an international emergency relief and community development ministry. While there she taught English to children, most of whom were orphans.Howell’s most lasting impression was the demeanor of the people. “Here [in the U.S.] when you go to a place where people are impoverished you see a lot of anger. Over there, it blew me away how happy everyone was … how happy these people could be with so little.”
