Hello my fellow people,
My name is Corissa and I will be blogging about my trip to Washington, D.C. during spring break! I am a junior at the University of Wisconsin- Oshkosh and majoring in Social Work with a minor in Social Justice with an emphasis in prejudice and discrimination. I excited to participate in Alternative Spring Break because I enjoy to volunteering and helping people make their lives better.
This trip interested me because it focuses on people in poverty. I might one day be working with people less fortunate in my job being a Social Worker. I am hoping I will learn about people in poverty and it will help give me an idea about what to expect as a Social Worker. I have volunteered at various other places throughout my life and have really enjoyed it. I like the fact that I am giving back to the community and making a difference.
During the trip I am looking forward to touring the different sites in Washington, D.C. and getting to know other people in my group. I am also looking forward to see the differences between my life and the less fortunate.
Until Next Time,
