Before the school board meeting began I had spare time to get to know some of the other students I will get to spend the summer with. When I began talking to Mark and Saba I could tell that we were going to get along great. I also talked to Jenny and Thao and caught up with them.
I am so grateful to be going to Columbia University this summer and once again having the opportunity to bring something different back to my school.

Earlier that day I had been nervous about meeting my new cohort but once I began talking to them my nerves became excitement and I now look forward to our meet and greet because I want to get to know everyone more. Don did a great job taking the group photo of all the ILCers and the parents as well as the chaperons.
