Well, it's official. I've been accepted to participate in a leadership program in Europe during July and early August. It will be summer in Prague around that time, and being immersed in the rich cultural history of a land that has been subject to periods of occupation and divided by ethnicity and an ambiguous national identity should make for a fantastic and memorable experience. It's been an opportunity I have been striving hard to get into for a few years, and I've had my fair share of hardships to overcome to get to this point. I feel humbled by this chance to make a difference to my life and gain insights that will inspire and encourage me to become a better person, to develop valuable skills and reach my potential.
Man, I'm so glad I'm doing European history at ANU this semester.
