An update from site leader Kate:

The Impact group selected for representing Southern Methodist University in New York City for spring break woke up early Monday morning at 5 am to depart from campus and begin their weeklong journey to one of the U.S.’s most exciting cities. The group included Nick, Megan, Brandy, Vivian, Matt, Saira, Christina, Wrenn, myself and faculty adviser Amy Schofield.

We boarded the plane and landed in Newark, N.J., then continued into Manhattan, where our hostel and service organization were located. We spent the rest of Monday walking around and beginning to get acquainted with the city.

I’m excited to be working with this great group of individuals, and I’m sure you’ll see the excitement through their individual accounts of the trip so far. Enjoy!
