All the ‘Craic’

August 14th, 2013 | Uncategorized

Yo! For the most part, everyone is here and we already have lots of pictures, accompanied by lots of laughs. My roommate is the only female soccer player, so shout out to Diana! We get along well, and all of the scholars bring something unique to SCL.

Attending ehoops was a learning moment because we sat and listened to a few young males in the program talk passionately about their culture. I was paired with one of the males in the program who really opened up to me. Hearing his story really touched me because we had just met, and he already had so much to share about how the program helped him turn his life around. 

I have no doubt that we will have memorable experiences while in school, in the community, and around town. All of the training will be very useful as we all settle in to our separate universities and community programs. Overall, I am really enjoying my time here. Having 24/7 access to Wi-Fi would be the best thing that could happen to me over the next few weeks because I would like to talk to my family and friends a “we” bit more. Until then I know I will be in great hands, surrounded by extraordinary people.
