Fighting Poverty with Passion




It IS the final countdown for me! This will be one of my last entries as a VISTA Leader here at Tulane AmeriCoprs VISTA program. Since I have last wrote I have been pretty busy. I have been trying to figure out what my next step in life will be as well as taking almost a week off to visit my home state of West Virginia. I had the privilege of taking a couple of VISTAs in our program back home with me. They had never been to West Virginia before so I did my best to expose them to a variety of activities and adventures that make West Virginia wild and wonderful.   Some of the shenanigans we got into were: swimming in a river, hiking at Dolly Sods, looking at the sites of Seneca Rocks, four-wheeler riding, indulging in homemade ice cream, eating savoring venison, staying at my grandfather’s cabin, spending some time in Nashville, and many more.
