The trip that started it all

When I leave for Peru on March 10th, it will actually be for the second time.  The first time I went to Peru was in 2010 for a volunteer trip as a senior in high school.  It really was a transformative experience for me, as I fell in love with the culture and I was moved by the extreme poverty I witnessed.  This really was the trip that first ignited my passions and has heavily influenced my decision to take the course of study I am pursuing in college (more info in the about section).  For anyone interested in learning more about that first experience I had, here is a link to the website the group of us made back in April of 2010.

Here's a picture of the group of us in front of Machu Picchu during that life-changing trip.
