I am so excited! I thought that last year would be my last year going on this trip, but a last minute illness of one of the other advisors has allowed for me to go on this trip for the third time with U of I students and fifth time overall. I could not be more excited!! I love every single one of the places we are going and I cannot wait (and we leave in less than 3 hours so there is not much waiting) to experience this trip with the students that have chosen to go this year. Of those of you I know, I know you are going to love it as much as I do. For those of you I don't know, I can't wait to learn about you and your journey and what has motivated you to come along on this trip.

I am beyond excited to be participating and advising this trip. Above all I am pleased to be in the company of the amazing students who have decided to participate on this trip. I am certain, they will all fall in love with the history of America and develop a new found love for activism, social change and civil rights! We leave in exactly 24hrs!
