Fast forward three months and a week later. It's summertime. I am at the CMA fest in 103 degree heat listening to Montgomery Gentry play, and I open my email to find out I WAS SELECTED!! I screamed. People stared. I didn't even care. Out of over 500 applicants, I was chosen to participate in this program. What an honor!
In the fall, I completed an eight week course for classroom hours towards my Masters degree from George Mason University. I was by far the hardest I have ever worked for my education, and I am proud to say that I earned my credits.
On February 18 I will be traveling to Washington, D.C. to meet my fellow TGC group face-to-face for the first time after months of corresponding by email, Blackboard, Facebook, and tons of other websites! It will be an exciting time as we prepare for the big time: 3 weeks in Morocco, a country in the northern portion of Africa!
