When I applied to Fort Lewis College, I thought I knew exactly what career path I wanted to pursue. My plan was to get a bachelor’s degree in psychology, and enter a master’s program for Child Life Specialists. Shortly after I was accepted, I had my first encounter with Village Aid Project-Engineers Without Borders (VAP-EWB). During the Albuquerque area open house, clips of VAP-EWB projects were shown. I had just committed to Fort Lewis College and the opportunity to fulfill my lifelong dream for international service made me even more excited! After the video completed, I whispered to my mother, “I am going to do that.” Four years later, my career path is more ambitious and I am more compassionate toward others thanks to VAP-EWB.

One of the most rewarding experiences for me here at Fort Lewis College has been getting involved with the Environmental Center on campus. As a freshman, I was very nervous about making new friends and finding a place where I could connect with like- minded students. Yet the moment I walked through the doors and into the sunlit cluster of bulletin boards, plants and comfy chairs, I felt instantly at home.
