My father worked menial jobs to make ends meet and support the family. Unfortunately, with little education or knowledge of the English language, these jobs yielded meager monetary earnings.
This summer I worked at Camp Cory as a Day Camp Coordinator. This experience came with many difficulties, one of the positives was working with counselors from other countries, including Spain, England, Brazil, Colombia, and Scotland. In my opinion, some of my best co-counselors were the international counselors. During the eight weeks I was there, I worked with four international co-counselors to facilitate a day camp group and worked closely with several others. Working with counselors from other countries, we shared our different values and learned about each other cultures. Even though we were from different backgrounds, we grew together, learn to work together despite our differences and became a family together. There were a few challenges that had to be worked through, one being a language barrier or in many cases an accent barrier. For some of the international workers, English was not their first language, or if it was, they had an accent that was difficult to understand. The language and accent barrier created miscommunication and funny conversations.
