I hope to raise enough to contribute to Atlantic Impact's mission of giving children from low-income areas the chance to see a bigger world.
Atlantic Impact is a three-year program that helps create college-bound students by involving them in a local and global community. During the second year, the kids are given the chance to travel out of the country, experience a different culture and learn about its history.
Summer 2014's trip will be to Barbados and I am excited to have the chance to join them on their adventure as a blogger so that I can capture their first impressions of travel and the impact it has on their worldview. Having worked in an undergraduate-awareness program before, this program has made a personal impact on me and I am excited to see where this goes!
