Reflecting on my Journey
Welcome back to my L.A.C.E.S. journey! I recently wrote a blog introducing myself, a blog about James Moore, the Program Director in Liberia, Leah Thirkill, the Operations Coordinator, and Seren Fryatt, the Founder and Executive Director. Make sure to check out these blog posts, so you can follow my L.A.C.E.S. journey!
With this being said, I feel like it’s only fair to mention my favorite part of my internship! I absolutely love hanging out with kids, so when the opportunity arose to help with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) virtual camp, I jumped at the chance. Through this camp, I planned different soccer and exercise activities, but my favorite part was definitely just talking with the youth. The middle schoolers got really into the scoreboard I created for them to track their progress and incorporate a little friendly competition, and by the end they were begging me to show the board!
See you soon:
I want to start off by saying that even though my internship is coming to a close, this is not a goodbye! L.A.C.E.S. will always have a special place in my heart, and I will always be here to support any way I can, whether that be through being a Game Changer or volunteering with their programs, both virtually and in-person! L.A.C.E.S. is just like family, and I’m beyond thankful for everyone who made my experience amazing, especially Leah and Seren.
