We peer advise AND listen =D
So after deciding what I wanted to write about for this post I realized that I have exhausted much of the main topics (telebears, midterms, etc.) SOOO I’m going off the grain on this one.
I know that as PALs we mostly give academic advice. To recommend classes to take, when to sign up and what websites to do this on. BUT we are peer advisors meaning we can advise on a lot of different things!

My Summer Plans
In two weeks I will be leaving for Uganda, and I'm really excited! I am going to be working with the Uganda Village Project, a non-profit providing sustainable public health projects in the Iganga District of Uganda. I have never been to Africa before, so I'm excited, but at the same time I don't really know what to expect. I'm pretty much ready to go; I got my malaria pills, my passport, my plane ticket. I will be there for two and a half months, with no electricity, flushing toilets, or running water.
