Challenges Contacting/ Staying in touch with organizations Communicating/ Public speaking Relying on others Homesick
Discoveries It is hard to stay in contact and work with an organization all the way in Haiti (wasn’t expecting that). I do things at the last minute. Like being in charge of things. I enjoy helping others.
Skills I Acquired… Learned how to work with power point. Learned how to be more annoying than usual. Staying persistent to get my approvals for events.
Future Plans Hopefully work more with middle school students. Continue to support organization in Haiti.
