Savoring Salt Lake City

The closer I get to the Global Launch becomes more and more surreal. As I sit with my friends in conversation I have started to take a step back and appreciate all of the love and support around me. Everything from a small smile to a passionate hug has filled my heart immensely these past few weeks. I never would have thought that going into this program would make me appreciate my home in Salt Lake City before I was already in Senegal. However, everyday I find myself, 

looking at the mountains a little bit longer than I normally would

Soaking in the sun and the dry heat..

..and when I look at the people around me I silently thank them for just being themselves and blessing me with their presense.

This program has already changed my life in the most positive ways and I cannot wait for the rest of the year. 


Cheers! Soph
