Doesn't it look heavenly?
January 4th, 2011 - Jason, David and I will depart St. Louis for the Philippines!!! :D
Are there about a thousand different things I would have like to put that money towards? Yes, but, for us, this is a once in a lifetime chance. We are completely out of debt minus my car and student loans which are acceptable forms of debt, mind you. We got our tickets for cheap and Jason has been dying to go back since the moment he set foot back on American soil almost 3 years ago. Because David is still under 2, he doesn't need his own seat so we'll be able to take him while saving money and not have to find a babysitter for a week and a half. The time change will definitely prove to be difficult, but we'll manage. I've always found the PI to be an intriguing place, but I would say that Jason's desire to return to his mission is the main reason for our trip. We are so excited!!!!!
Throughout my late adolescense and adulthood, I have had many positions (professionally and volunteer basis) that have helped me develop skills necessary to serve as a liaison to the community on behalf of a professional organization. I have spent many years in various organizations which have helped me grow skills such as public speaking, note taking, and scheduling. I am proficient in organization and mediation – always keeping the mindset of finding middle ground and while meeting the needs of those involved. I excel in the area of community outreach and thrive in situations where I am given reign to be creative and managerial. I am committed to achieving the best outcome and feel I have many fantastic qualities to contribute to any organization.
