My name is Kara, and I am a senior education major at Texas A&M. Recently, I returned from Italy. I was there for two months teaching English in the public middle schools. That was my first time out of the country for an extended period of time. This summer, I have the opportunity to travel to Thailand on a mission trip. I have been blessed and supported by so many people, and without them this trip would not be possible. I am really excited for July 3rd to get here so I can meet some wonderful Thai people.
