I have been amazed and impressed beyond belief with the group of volunteers that I’m going to The Gambia with. They remind me of how big and small the world is. A group of 36 people that are so liberal, intelligent, beautiful, compassionate and understanding. We are extremely diverse and come from varied backgrounds, but we are all very like minded. I feel encouraged, uplifted and very supported. So if you worry about me or if I’ll be ok…. Don’t. I’m safe. I’m healthy. I’m happy.
I’m also going to really miss philly. The city has definitely shown me a good time. I tried lots of new things here and I’m sure to have lots of new experiences prepared for me on my journey ahead. I’ll update when I can.
