I actually enjoyed this play a lot more than the previous one. There were many monologues that made you sympathize with. Lots of them were very entertaining and made me laugh. While others made you tear because they were very sad stories. I enjoyed this monologue and am actually forward to seeing next years.
I thought this trip was actually kind of fun. We got to learn about artifacts from the Himalayas. I learned that some people back then used different colors to differentiate good and bad people. The rug that we saw in the museum exhibited how the bad guys were red and the people who fought against the [...]

Visiting the Rubin Museum was intriguing for me because I’ve always been very curious about different cultures and beliefs. The shrine kept upstairs was most memorable for me as it was stunning… Loved the colors and sculptures, was definitely inspired.
Voices was inspiring, sad and heart-warming. The variety of monologues proved to be entertaining. From sad monologues discussing a parental loss or a best friend becoming ill to the cheerful ones discussing a best friend’s adventure into Europe, Voices gave me an emotional roller coaster. It also gave me some insight into the fellow classmates [...]
After attending voices 4 I have become aware that a lot of people have come from many different back grounds than I. Many live much worse life experiences and some not as bad. This makes me more aware of the people around me and be open to help.
I learned a lot about credit and how useful it will be during and after college. I also learned that making some changes in my life style can make drastic changes financially such as buying bubble tea which is $4 i could buy 4 water bottles with that or just save $4.
