As I was experiencing Light the World!, I first thought I would be a loner and enjoy only the trips and that would be my favorite thing. However, as I met my roommates who will forever be my friends now, I learned that my favorite thing about the institute was learning that faith is a lifestyle that can be incorporated into everyday life. Moreover, my number one  favorite, was having daily mass  with teens my age that have the same love for God as I do. – Carley, Participant
