The opportunity to participate in the ACE program is truly a blessing for me. The privilege to serve in South Africa will allow me to advocate for causes that I am passionate about, while making a difference in the people and community that I will serve. My hopes are to connect with others by inspiring and improving their lives while transforming my own.
