|SOI Antarctic Youth Expedition 2010: Youth Impressions
The following impressions were contributed by students while crossing the Drake Passage en route back to South America...
Looking forward to being the best human I can be and using what I have learned to grow and better the planet
Painting the world a different colour
ACJ love you guys! Three blind mice!
Coming back home and sharing my experience with friends and family and hopefully inspire them as much as SOI inspired me!
Live life... do things because you want to
Coming back to Antarctica and high school
Take in every moment
Don’t waste your life or your influence
The bread was amazing
Be careful of what you put in the ocean, because the ocean has no drain
Let’s not treat the planet like we have an extra in the trunk.
I want to stay here
So many penguins, so little time
I’ll miss all of you
What will surprise you next?
Go Generation G!
Change the world
Bright future, more education, more respect
The future is in good hands
Our generation has awesome potential!
Knowing my decisions can change and affect a world in need
Coming back here and seeing the differences we made on the poles and the planet
Even one person can make a difference, even if not seen right away
The ability to turn our potential into kinetic motion and actions
Good Morning Students on Ice, Good Morning World!
Seeing my life grow each year and make a change
Coming back to Antarctica and doing/seeing different things
Getting to share this experience with others and hopefully leave footsteps in their life forever
Coming back to this place one day knowing that I’ve helped it in some way
That everyone awakes and realizes the great challenge humanity is facing
SOI – An organization beyond any words
I am able to be me, whoever I want to be
Words cannot describe
Thank you Antarctica – you are the best teacher I ever had
Penguin Highways... pink and yellow ones
Where will they take us? Everywhere and nowhere, somewhere that smells like penguins
Life changing and encouraging us to do something to preserve our home called planet Earth... We don’t own it, we just live on it
We are all fellow citizens and planet Eearth is our home... Let’s learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools
We are all on a spaceship that we are only renting! – Nicole
What does normal mean?
Future employers... we're ready for hire!
I feel like I belong
I finally fit in!
Forever touched, forever changed...time to transform the world
We search for adventure, its right in front of us
One people, one world, one love
Best feeling ever, feel wonderful
Best time ever and I will be back
Part of the world
It is one thing to learn about a place, but to actually experience all the wonders it has to offer, well, that is extraordinary!
It’s ineffable to describe in words
Sounds of nature
Protect the poles, protect the planet!
I’m reflecting on new and old horizons – the world is changing, I’m ready to make a difference
For peace and love, live on the land and love your neighbour
I’m afraid that the world will end and humanity will be erased if we don’t act now
People who decide to ignore our message of life will miss amazing chances to transform this amazing living planet
Life is hard but full of rewards
A different me
A new perspective on life
Taking action! Making a difference!
