it was great
I’m going home.
I will be spending my 4th of July at Camp tomorrow.
I discovered Camp just weeks after changing my major from Biology to Design during my sophomore year of college. Camp held an on-campus info session, which my friends and I attended on a whim, and I was hired that night. I still remember calling my parents from the art building to share the unexpected news. I didn’t know what to expect, but I am so glad I said yes.
Camp serves diabetic children ages 6 to 18. As a counselor, I worked 18-hour days and loved the work I did and the people I served. I loved it so much, in fact, that I spent four summers there.
I had no idea that the experiences I would have at Camp would bring me back to medicine years later. I believe the route I took in life made me a deeper, more balanced person with a better understanding of self, more confidence, and a clearer understanding of my skill set. I am so thankful for those differences.
I will probably write at greater length about my visit later this week.
