Fall is such an exciting time - everyone is settling in, the weather is great and the idea of a fresh start is rejuvenating. In the midst of all that excitement, I'm looking forward to getting things rolling with Habitat. Fall semester is jam-packed with opportunities to get involved and to take some big strides in helping future Habitat families. While looking back on my years as a UGA Habitat member, I’ve realized that events like the Turkey Trot, freezing cold mornings while on builds sites and fundraising during the Christmas season are some truly fond memories (and some of our biggest opportunities to raise $$$).
Also, being a senior and already tasting a hint of nostalgia while writing this, I’m thinking back to those moments during which I formed great friendships. Sometimes I hated painting that door with you because your brush strokes weren’t as calculated as mine and sometimes we disagreed about what was the best color for a flyer. But when we all stood together, covered in paint and sawdust, and that family thanked us with tears in their eyes, I felt immense gratitude.
Thanks to all my fellow Habitaters, and thank you, Habitat families, for all the beauty you add to the world.
Can’t wait to get this year started,
