We asked Keertana to answer some questions for us about why she decided to participate in Alternative Breaks and what she loves most about it. So here are her answers

Which Alternative Break(s) have you previously participated in?

Project Open Hand: Atlanta, Georgia

What is your favorite thing about Alternative Breaks?

My favorite thing about Alternative Breaks is being able to work with other KU students who want to help others.

What was your favorite thing you learned from Alternative Breaks?

I learned that people really appreciate your help. When someone is in need, something that may be considered small to one person, can be worth a lot to another.

What is your favorite memory from Alternative Breaks?

My group in Atlanta got a huge taste of  “southern hospitality.” All of our host families took us in with open arms and really made us feel at home.

What is a random fact about yourself?

My favorite place in Lawrence is Clinton Lake! I love to go out there and watch the sunset.
