Welcome to my blog! I am so excited to have this back up and running so I can keep all of you up to date on my experiences in Ghana. I will be embarking on a 3 month internship in Accra with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) developing anti-child trafficking initiatives in schools around the city.

I hope you enjoy the blog! I will do my best to post regularly!

Sessions and Saris

While at the college we have had sessions on Indian culture, community living, career planning, and our summer volunteer experiences. Last year's volunteers have been amazing resources to us answering questions big and small. Tonight, they even came over and taught the girls how to properly wear their saris. I learned as well in case anyone needed help getting ready in the morning!
I am getting more and more excited for the trip as the departure gets nearer and we learn more about what we will be doing while in Agartala. I will do my best to post as soon as I can once we arrive in India!

Summer and getting ready!

My time since graduating from Stonehill College on 23 May, 2010 has flown by! I have had the opportunity to spend quite a lot of time with family and friends. Most recently, I took a trip to Beaufort, South Carolina with Katherine to attend the wedding of my good friends Gabi and Seth. Beaufort was, as always, charming and we had a lot of fun! Congratulations to the bride and groom!
As far as my trip goes, I am beginning to make packing lists and Mom and I will be going shopping soon to get anything else that I need! I am very excited, but also very nervous for this experience of a lifetime to begin and I feel so very blessed to have the love and support of family, friends, and Katherine!
