meet Stephanie.

Hello! My name is Stephanie, and I am a junior in the Nursing Program and taking part in the Domincan Republic Study Abroad.  Unfortunately, I am not able to actually travel to the Domincan Republic, but I still wanted to help out with planning a lesson and educating the children about a vital subject.
I wrote a story about a young boy named Javier, he was born with HIV and since his classmates found out that he has HIV they did not want to be friends with him.  The story is titled, “Javier and I” it tells about all of the activities and fun things that you can do as friends without having to worry about contracting HIV.  It’s a story of friendship and learning.
I was really excited to work on this project, but it was definitely a struggle to push though and do all of the work since I don’t get to physically go with everyone to the Dominican Republic.  I’ve cut, colored, and laminated so much that I would be fine to never do arts and crafts ever again, but I know that it will be worth it in the end because of the lesson that I be getting across to the children.  I hope that I presented the information to them in a way that they can apply it to themselves and use everyday.
I can’t wait to hear all of the stories from my peers about their awesome experience in the DR.  Good luck to everyone going, I know you’ll all have a blast!
