It's crazy to think that Spring Break is just around the corner! This break marks the halfway point of the semester. On the plus side, this means there’s only one semester left until the Summer. On the down side, that means midterms are right around the corner. Luckily, most of my classes aren’t having the midterms in exam form, but rather in the form of essays and projects.
For my Spring break, I will be going to Puerto Rico on a service trip with a group of students from Norwich through the Center for Civic engagement's Alternative Spring Break. I am very excited since I have puerto rican roots. Although half of my family lives in Puerto Rico, I haven’t visited in over eight years because of the constant issues from the Zika virus to high crime rates. I can’t wait to have this opportunity to do a part in rebuilding the island, even if it may be small when looking at the big picture.
