Today (March 9) we leave to begin our journey to Malawi. As I sit in the airport waiting for everyone to arrive for check-in, I think about my first time beginning this adventure. I had so many feelings & thoughts going through my head about the place I was headed to. I am sure Ursuline College students Maggie Stark, Molly Sabolsky, Taylor Bruno and Rhianna McChesney have a million thoughts racing through their heads. I know I was nervous, but extremely excited for everything I was about to encounter.
The new sounds, smells, tastes, sights and cultures I was about to be a part of would change me forever. I can only hope it will be the same for the students. It will be a wonderful thing to see the students enjoy new things in Malawi.
We will be traveling with four members of the H.E.L.P. Organization. This means a lot of luggage. I am sure we will have close to 20 bags with all the sewing supplies we are taking. It will be a special adventure for all of us! Our first leg is simple; NYC. Next time we check-in it will be for our flight to Malawi.
