This was the first congress that I have ever attended. And I can honestly say that being on congress was one of the best experiences of my life! I was a few days late, but once I arrived it was so nice to see how warm and welcoming everyone was. Especially because I did not know majority of the people there. The scenery around us was very beautiful in both Gariep and Clarence. We quickly formed bonds and made memories to last a life time!
It was then when I realized that Congress was not just about having a good time, but more importantly it is about uniting Hellenes from across the country to celebrate our culture and create those friendships that truly last forever! And this made me very proud to be a representative for NAHYSOSA.
I cannot wait to go on my second congress next year!
