I have always loved traveling and with this course I felt that this would be something that I would remember for the rest of my life. Traveling has always been something that has interested me and because of this trip I will be going to some place that I probably would not have gone to otherwise, and help people that will make an impact in my life.
Before this class began, I did not know very much about South Africa. All I knew was that Nelson Mandela became the president after being in jail for a long time. When I began telling people that I would be going to South Africa I found that many of the people that I know have been there and have really enjoyed themselves.
This experience will be a once in a lifetime trip for me and I am so excited to go and meet the people there and to learn about their country while traveling with some amazing people. I hope that everything we do while we are down there has a positive effect on those we are trying to help, and in the end all that we have done will make their lives more enjoyable. I am so excited for this trip!!
