I chose to do my My Story Project on my mission trip to Alabama. Being that this was such a poignant event in my life thus far, I thought it perfectly encompassed “My Story.” Spending ten days in a depressed community was life-changing event on its own, but having them take all electronics forced us to truly be where we were. I was able to assist the children of Wetumpka, Alabama through reading, crafts, and religious scripture, while having fun and playing games, as well. I grew closer with my peers and strengthened my faith during this time, as well, and was able to reflect on what is important in my life. This is My Story because it greatly impacted my life and showed me just how fortunate I am.
