This past week was action-packed to say the least! It was Reading Week, which is a week where most students are off from school to catch up on their studies. It’s basically just a midterm break.

On Monday and Tuesday, I really just relaxed and caught up on some school work and a few projects.

On Wednesday, Drew and I hosted the first ever LIT Sport Halloween basketball camp. There was an incredible turnout and everyone involved enjoyed themselves! There were 17 enthusiastic and excited kids at camp- as seen in the featured picture. We worked on some fundamentals like dribbling, passing and shooting. We also ran some shooting drills and finished out with a big game of dribble knockout! Not only were we able to teach the kids the fundamentals of the game but we were also able to talk to them and get to know them. We shared a bit about ourselves like where we are from, our experience with the game, why we are in Ireland and our main purpose as Victory Scholars. As a result, Drew and I are already talking about doing more camps like it in the future!

Then Thursday was another day to relax and do some more work for school. On Friday, Drew and I went to a radio station, Limerick Live 95 FM, for an interview with Joe Nash. Joe asked us about who we were and all about the Victory Scholar Program. We talked about the program in its entirety and shared some of our experiences here in Ireland. Below is a picture of Joe, Drew and me after the interview.

Last but certainly not least, on Saturday our sport coordinator at LIT, Wayne, took Drew, Taylor and me to see the Cliffs of Moher. It was incredible! It is hard to describe in words how truly breathtaking the Cliffs of Moher are; I have never seen anything like it before! The views and the natural scenery were spectacular. We were very lucky we had decent weather for the trip and we even got to see the sunset over the cliffs, talk about amazing. Shoutout to Wayne for taking the time to bring us there; we have been very fortunate to have a lot of great people looking after us here in Ireland! Last week was a great week and I’m looking forward to many many more in the near future!
