One year ago I was asked to speak at the Project Unite event at Aquinas College. This event is a large scale community service project for the incoming freshman class. Every year they ask an alumni to come back as the guest speaker. I had an AMAZING experience last year as the guest speaker. Recently I came across the speech and decided that it would be a good one to share with everyone here. ENJOY! :)
"When I was first asked to be the guest speaker for Project Unite, I was humbled and honored. To come back to the institution, to come back home to AQ and relive moments of orientation that hold such a special place in my heart is a true honor and privilege.
The summer before my freshman year here at Aquinas I had an opportunity to travel to the Dominican Republic for a mission trip. The experience was eye opening and inspiring – everything that you might imagine. However, I was soon off to college and life became so busy that my hopes of one day returning were merely a memory.
