This video exemplifies the positive impact and empowerment Krochet Kids is making in Peru and Uganda.
As I mentioned above, this is a volunteer position. Am I nervous or concerned about not getting paid? No. I trust that everything will work out the way it is supposed to. I was lucky to have had the opportunity to go to Creighton University for the past four years, where we were encouraged everyday to live out the Jesuit teachings to be men and women for and with others. Service was a large influential portion of my college career, from going on service trips to West Virginia to volunteering as a mentor at a local high school. I feel called to use my skills and attributes in a positive way to make a lasting impact on people. There is no better time to answer this calling than when I am 22 years old without any attachments. I hope to grow more than I ever thought I could and I hope to challenge myself everyday.
This was part of my acceptance letter to Krochet Kids Peru...
Our hope and vision for these coming 6 months is that they will stretch you in a unique way. From being immersed in a new culture, to learning the behind-the-scenes of what we do, to using- and growing- your skills and gifts for a cause you believe in, we want this experience to shape you for the future.
You will be challenged. You will challenge others. Your worldview will be expanded. And our goal is that by the end of your time with us, you’ll feel more prepared to take next steps toward your career and life dreams.
Now that's what I am talking about! Thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way of finding my passion. I am excited to share this adventure with you! Follow this blog for all updates.
