3 weeks to go ...

By: Megan Kirschner

I can't believe we're leaving for Nicaragua in less than three weeks! I am amazed at how the past 9 months have unfolded. I have learned so much about international economic policy and the effects that certain organizations have on developing countries like Nicaragua. 

We have grown much closer as a team and am looking forward to see how our time in Nicaragua brings us even closer.  It was great to Skype with Brooke from Witness for Peace yesterday, I can't wait to meet her and Christine!  Overall my anxiousness about the delegation is becoming excitement. 

I consider myself blessed to have the opportunity to collaborate with women from the health clinics to create a program that may have a small impact on the health outcomes of those who live in La Chureca.  I am most looking foward to meeting the many people in Nicaragua who are devoting their lives to create social change, seeing the smiles on the childrens' faces, and dancing with the familes in Matagalpa! 

I can only imagine what Nicaragua has in store for us as a team, and for me personally.
