Aslaam-o–Alekum (Describe your greetings). My name is (Your name) and I would like to say a few words about my experience here at (University/College/Institute name).
Many people spend their whole lives wondering what their purpose in life is, whether they have a greater calling, something bigger than themselves or not. We may still not be a 100% sure as to what our mission is, but what we do know for sure is that the time we’ve spent here was part of our ultimate mission or goal of life. (Describe in your words). We have helped the children reach their fullest potential, found a way to comfort and calm them, battled on behalf of their rights, making every day of our working lives a form of a personal crusade.
I have realized that studying with (Institute type) brings with it abundant opportunities for grace. It slows you down and allows you to enjoy the little things; a hard won skill, a tight hug, a pleasant conversation and spontaneous displays of love. (Explain total situation). I have learnt how to do research, find information and understand what specialists are talking about. And I have learnt through hard experience that you cannot wait for the answers to come to you and that if you don’t go out and find them, things are never going to get done. (Explain your feelings).
It is often said by people who mean well that working with children with special needs “requires the patience of a saint.” It is not true. What it does require is human compassion; something more of us has than we seem ready to acknowledge. (Explain your expectation regarding farewell). If there was a growth chart for us internees it would represent our doubt in our abilities to handle such an overwhelming challenge and how with time we have managed to reach greater percentiles by gaining control of the situations we have faced every day. (Explain your expectation regarding today’s program).
With help from the teaching staff, administration and fellow volunteers our journey here was made an absolute delight. I would like to thank (Teachers name) for giving all of us the opportunity to not only gain experience by working with these blessed children but also the opportunity to grow. (Cordially describe your wish and greetings). We can now walk out of this building with our heads held high, but only to return and give back a lot more than what we have received.
