In June of 2012 I had the oppertunity to volunteer at Judah Quy: Casa de los Preciosos in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. It was an eye opening experiencing to the need of those around the world. I have the oppertunity to impact my community every day by working at Best Buddies but I have the desire to do more. My expereince in Bolivia has ignited a passion in me to continue to volunteer and travel around the world. My application has been excepted to volunteer at Embracing Hope Ethiopia and will be traveling to Addis Ababa at the end of December.
