This ^^ is how
I dance when no one is watching excited I am to be chosen as a MTM fellow.
Tomorrow, me and seven equally amazing
dancers people will begin our year long journey as MTM (More Than Me) fellows in Liberia! I couldn’t be more excited to take on this new experience. It is our opportunity to respond to that desire that is within us all — the desire to give of ourselves in order to make the world a better place.
More Than Me has been hard at work in Liberia providing young girls with options. Options that have disintegrated as a result of years of civil war. So, tomorrow, I will be in Liberia joining in the fight to get young girls off the street and safely into school. Just typing those words is surreal, yet satisfying.
I have to admit, as excited as I am, I know this will not be an easy road and that truthfully makes me nervous. Will the girls like me? Will they feel comfortable with me? Will they learn from me? All I know is, I will do my absolute best, to make sure I give these girls my best and contribute to making their futures a little brighter.
Tonight is my last night in familiar surroundings. While I will undoubtedly be sad to be leaving my loved ones and the milestones that will occur in this next year, I am welcoming this journey with open arms and an open mind. We were each chosen for
our razor sharp wits good reason by the good folks at MTM and will do them proud. I was selected as the communications/digital media fellow, so you will most likely be hearing more from me on this blog very soon! Bon voyage to my future coworkers! Chapter 1 of our new book begins tomorrow.
