Rock the Vote! Hong Kong style.
On Wed it was overseas voting day at the Embassy in Hong Kong. There were a lot of instructions, but we were triumphant and figured it out. Me & my friends rocked the vote!
I hope everyone is gonna vote on Nov 4th!
So part of this trip I'm on is that I have to raise support.
This is the India video I made... me doing random "India" jobs.
Check it out. It makes me laugh - maybe you'll laugh too.
I got the dengue fever when in Thailand so that's the reason why my delay in editing... hope you enjoy!

It's been a while since I've updated my g-rad blog.
We were in Thailand for the month of September. I got the dengue fever went into the hospital, lice, and slipped and hurt my tailbone all within a span of two days. But it's all good now!
We worked with SHE Self Help & Empower for the month of September. Which helps girls who want to get out of the sex trafficking industry and helps them find their self worth again through making jewelry. It was an amazing time getting to know the girls who have decided to make that change and also going to bars and becoming friends and building up trust to offer them a way out if they wanted to take it.
Yesterday we landed in Macau and took the ferry over to Hong Kong!!! Even though it's not mainland China it's amazing to be here! Today Wednesday was a national holiday and we watched fireworks at the harbor! They were some of the best fireworks I have ever seen in my life!
Tomorrow we start teaching English at a school here. I'm really pumped all around!!!! After Hong Kong we go to Cambodia... then I come back to Michigan in December.
