    In CICD I had grown and changed a lot. I had to adapt, be tolerant, respect others and most importantly, be humble.

    Most important of all for me: the acceptance that no one is perfect and the important thing is that you give the best of you.

    We could get a little piece of African reality as we went to our project. We could taste the bitterness of poverty and we were able to do our part making the world a better place to live.
