“Who doesn’t have a passport?”
There was a very long, very awkward silence as I raised my hand ever so shyly. This is my first international trip, and today I recieved my first passport stamp! One of my teammates took his first ever flight when he started with Aspen three years ago. One of my teammates is experiencing her first long trip away from her husband of ten years. Another one is meeting her sponsored children for the first time. The picture below is also the first time all seven of us have been in the same room together.
I think I speak for my whole team when I say that we are thankful for this experience. A lot of companies preach about philanthropy and service but Aspen actually lives by “Live, Give, Go”. This is the go part.
