I am so excited (and nervous) about my upcoming ASB trip tomorrow. I made this trip to Newark my first choice when selecting trips because I found I was identifying with working with those that experienced the devastation of Hurricane Sandy because I lived that storm being from Long Island, New York. My family and our home was effected but not to the extent of those in New Jersey. I also am interested in rebuilding in several senses of the word. I am looking at possibly majoring in engineering and this experience may help me explore that further but it would also help me understand how rebuilding requires active citizens. The element of creating a documentary about the effects of media also raised my interest as it would allow for me to explore how to teach others about giving back to community.
