Alkebulan has affected me in many ways. It gave me a sense of community. Usually, most people I know is either from school or my neighborhood. While at Alkebulan, I have made many connections with people I wouldn’t have known if I wasn’t here. Alkebulan is like a cycle. The staff (adults or elders) help and teach us while we are young. We become adults and give back to the community. The next generation always learn from the previous one. The cycle influences many people since there will always be someone younger and less fortunate than us. The connections made here will last forever, creating many positive relationships with one another. Why help one person when you can change the world too?
