Spring Break 2009 [March 08- 15]

This time around, I'll be in San Pedro Sula for a week. I'll be putting my journalistic skills to test, in this real world experience.

Dr. Paat, the leader for the Students for Medical Missions trip to Honduras decided to give me the opportunity to tag along. I will be doing an article for the Independent Collegian and a video package for The Palestra.

Hopefully, I'll be able to capture the motivations behind the people who paid almost $1,000 to be on this trip, work from dawn till dusk giving out medical supplies and treating patients, and what kept them going back.

You'll get to see why students on the trip would give up Spring Break Partying to work their ass off for zero dollars an hour.

I know the language barrier might be a problem, but I'd really like to interview the locals about their culture, the highs and the lows, and what it takes to be a Honduran.
