GW AmeriCorps VISTAS

Story: Already shared it at the conference call, but going on my site visit to Excel (in Anacostia) was a great experience. I think people often think that DC stops at the Anacostia River - or at least the DC they like to think of does. It's hard to reflect without sounding like a walking white savior complex, but I'm the first to admit that I'm just here to learn & do what I can to help. I just want to help kids have options for their future and I believe that education is a huge avenue to do that.

Very tired, very ready to be done with this week. Feeling like I have good goals set and good support to meet those goals, now it's just finding/structuring my time to meet all of them. Still kinda weird being introduced as an intern when I'm more than a year out of school. Very blessed to be at my school though, I've noticed a lot of tasks have become easy because I have the relationships established to get buy-in from folks, which is nice to feel like I'm finally a fixture and staff member in the school. A lot to look forward to in my work and my personal growth but I've also made a lot of gains already so far so I need to remember that.

It's been a good if not a bit nerve-wracking start to the school year. I'm excited to see what this year will bring in terms of growth for myself as well as for the school and community. I'm glad I have the opportunity to build on the work Amy started and passed on to me last year, and plan to be more creative throughout my work to accomplish the goals of my school.
