T minus 4 days!!!!

Hey Everyone!

I have spent this week back at home in Springfield. I have been crazy busy with packing and trying to get ready for school. I also had my wisdom teeth taken out on Thursday. Thankfully, no problems have occurred. My friends have come to visit me and kept me company. I also have been out and about getting ready for school. I am leaving for Hope on Tuesday. I will be an orientation assistant (OA) for group 34! I am so excited for orientation! 

My OA partner and I met up a couple weeks ago to write a letter and welcomed the students in our group. We are going to buy stuff for our group next week when I return to Holland. It feels so weird that I’m home right now and it only feels like I’m visiting. I have only been home twice this summer. Holland now feels like my new home. I really enjoyed living in Holland this year. The Hope Entrepreneurship Initiative (HEI) program was an incredible opportunity for me. On August 4, all of the students in the program gave a PowerPoint presentation about their idea and the work they have done over the summer. We each gave about a 7-minute presentation and also spent time networking with alumni from Hope College and people from the Holland community. I am so thankful for the HEI summer program, and I cannot wait to return to Hope for Orientation in one week!!!

Have a good day!
