“I enjoyed visiting many exciting places while on tour with the African Children’s Choir, and meeting many people. It was an awesome lifetime experience I will never forget, I cherish every moment. MFL has given me an opportunity that I would never of had. It gave me a chance to be who I am today and to achieve my childhood dream of becoming a nurse. Without MFL I do not know where I would be today.”
