Today is the last day of the trip! i cannot believe how much ive learned, seen and done. it was just 2 weeks ago when i arrived at Camp Hope not knowing anyone (except for my travel buddy Julea) and knowing what to expect for the next little while. although i was instantly feeling home sick my modivation was reminding myself why im here; to rebuild lives and homes.
i learned how to drywall, siding, flooring, clean an abandoned home, and so much more. we’ve met some great speakers and home owners who ive learned so much from.
now that the trip is over, i can say i had a great experience and believe many people should come down to the Big Easy for not only tourism reasons but to help as well. theres still so much that needs to be done, even 5 years after the storm.
