I am so excited about my opportunity to travel to Ecuador this summer! This is so going to be an amazing trip. Having the opportunity to serve as one of the team leaders has taught me so much about myself as well as what it means to be a servant leader. Traveling to Ecuador with this group of students is one aspect of the trip that makes me smile. Our meetings over the course of this past school year has created bonds that will last a life time. I wake up and pinch myself daily because my dreams are coming true. This will be my first international service trip but it most certainly will not be my last. It has always been my belief that if you can inspire the man you can change the world. I believe my trip to Ecuador will be the inspiration that I need in my life right now. I look forward to the memories we will all make as well the nee stories we are writing in the book called the rest of our lives.
