I published a personal essay, “A Trip of a Life Time Doesn’t Need to Come to an End,” in the NDSU Magazine. The hard copy has many great pictures, not just the one at the top of the page.
Here are the first two paragraphs:
When I told friends and family members I was going to southern Sudan as part of a documentary film crew and humanitarian aid project, many asked me in different ways, “Do you think this trip will change your life?” I always answered with confidence, “no.” I was just hoping to survive the trip without getting sick, shot at, killed in a plane crash, or stranded in a remote Sudanese village. I was pretty sure the trip would be memorable, a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, but not life changing.
Of course I was wrong.
