We asked Kate 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?
St. Louis, MO Kingdom House

 

What is your favorite thing about Alternative Breaks?
Not only do you get to have new experiences and make connections but you learn about how you can make an impact on the work around yourself.

 

What was your favorite thing you learned from Alternative Breaks?
That volunteering is continual. It's great to give back to the community, but you have to expand on the volunteering to really make a difference and to make institutional changes in the world.

Creating pictures and stories with the elementary aged kids!

 

What is a random fact about yourself?
I love comedy movies!
