I am somewhat apprehensive. I have seen the itinerary and realize that there are high expectations of the students. I know I am capable, but this is intimidating.
I expect that I will be overwhelmed. I fear I may be hindered since I am only a junior with little experience.
We will have information thrown at us from all directions. This information will be a number of things and I expect it to be difficult to decide one story to focus all my efforts on.
This being said, I am looking forward to the trip. I will enjoy getting to know more about Missouri and different perspectives about controversial matters. With enthusiasm and enough caffeine I will learn and grow from early, early morning to late night.
