The H.O.P.E. Center is aammaaazzzziiinnnggg, and yes, it does deserve all of those letters. It’s so great to see the H.O.P.E. Center in person — not just in pictures — and just to see where all of our hardwork and money goes! Keep it up everyone! The staff is wonderful — all so nice and welcoming. Sister Mary just laughs at us all of the time. I think she thinks our accents are funny. Margaret is literally amazing and definitely one of the coolest people I’ve ever met. I made the mistake of telling her that I am afraid of spiders so she hasn’t let me live that down at all and mentions it every time she sees me… greatttt… We had a lizard crawling all over our walls and ceiling last night, which was absolutely terrifying. But other than work we watched the Germany versus Ghana football game. This has been such a great experience already and will definitely continue to be for the next 5 weeks!

To Northwestern students:
This past fall, GlobeMed at Northwestern began what will soon be a a chapter tradition: The Global Marketplace. If you are interested in donating to our annual sale, please pick up something during your travels that can be sold at the Marketplace in the fall? It doesn’t matter if you aren’t going somewhere international, anything would be great! Thanks!
