Why ECOEE: When I first heard about ECOEE at Discover Western, I knew it would be something that I would be very interested in doing if I were to come to school at Western. My reasoning for wanting to do ECOEE is that I know there will be many aspects of the trip that will take me out of my comfort zone and I will be challenged. Also, I am very excited to go on this trip because I love to travel and experience places I have never been to. I am also excited to search for new skills and opportunities to help me become a better leader, expand my knowledge on topics, and to be more equipped in certain areas that I can use in the future. I hope to go in to non-profit ministry in the future, and hope to take the tools that I gain on this trip and apply them to that career.
