Pre trip thoughts

It is the day before departure. 

Excited and ready to head out, as well as ready for the first couple of days to be rainy. 

What I am most anticipating about our trip! 

I can’t wait to experience the culture of  New Orleans. I love to travel and see new places and immerse myself in the happenings and customs of the area. 

I’m also looking forward to getting my hands dirty working on a project that will really make a difference for the people of NOLA and to be a part of something that matters in the long run. 

I can’t wait to try a crawfish boil!! Woo hoo!! 

What am I most anticipating about our trip

The time is almost here , and soon we shall  be walking the plank in New Orleans.  I am anticipating an overall great learning experiance , with an amazing group of people . Our continued efforts within this program will be known for many years to come . I am thankful to be given this opportunity.
