“Being a part of Lehman LIFE has allowed me to not only gain experiences but gained friendships that feels like family to me. My previous trip to Puerto Rico has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and allowed me to gain confidence in myself. Now I am a Team Leader for the upcoming Kenya trip, which I am excited to experience for the first time. Being able to service a community in need is rewarding in itself. Every trip change you in many ways that you wouldn’t expect.”
