On where you call home: To me, a home is a place where I feel that I have a special connection. While I don't need to physically reside in a specific area for me to call it home, I believe that home is a location where something positively impactful on your life has occurred. One of the more exciting parts of this fellowship is that I will be placed in a brand new location where the ingredients are there to create those impactful experiences which will allow me to call this new place home.
