With only a few hours left before I’m en route to Pespire, it’s only now starting to sink in that our adventure to Honduras is finally here. This trip is definitely going to be an experience unlike any other I’ve previously encountered, but I think that’s why I’m so excited for it. I can’t wait to fully immerse myself in the Honduran culture, from eating Honduran food to experiencing traditional Honduran values and customs (although my Spanish is going to need quite a bit of dusting off).
The social issue of rural healthcare we’re headed to Pespire to investigate is something I’m excited to learn more about, as the standard of healthcare is a topic I’m very passionate about. As a girl who’s been raised in an urban suburb of New York City, I’ve only been exposed to the quality of healthcare in the big city, so the standard of healthcare in a rural area, nonetheless in an underprivileged nation, is going to be quite interesting to experience.
I can’t wait to embark on this once-in-a-lifetime experience with a great team! Adios America!
