So, three years ago I joined AmeriCorps. It's an awesome program filled with thousands of individuals who want to serve their country. AmeriCorps volunteers do a variety of things, in different program areas. I joined up with Habitat for Humanity, and I've now worked with three different affiliates: Habitat for Humanity of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Lafayette (Louisiana) Habitat for Humanity and Habitat for Humanity of Burlington County NJ. My fellow AmeriCorps and I have built homes, recruited volunteers and put deserving families in safe, affordable, shelter.
If I hadn't joined AmeriCorps and hadn't met all of the people I did, or had such awesome team members, I don't think I'd be back in school right now for photography. I don't think I'd even be taking photos, and I don't think I'd be as good as I am now. I'm not great, I'm not spectacular, but I'm better because of all these people.
So, here are some snapshots from the past couple of years.
Oh. Wow. I've a lot of photos from Mississippi...so so many, and I can't share them all. Below are Louisiana photos.
And I'm working on New Jersey.
