    (11) Tonight's post is dedicated to these lovely gals here! We met these girls on the way back to the loft from Share Foods. They taught us games and made us laugh the whole bus ride! I can't wait to keep going through this adventure with my team and seeing how we can impact the world around us. Thankful for my team for teaching me how to be a better person daily.

    P.S. thanks to the 2nd year team for dinner this evening! (And for the delish cookies)

    Our Rocky is Representin'

    May 10, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 11 °C

    Kouzes and Posner suggest exemplary leaders should “treat every job as an adventure.” What have you learned about how to do this on this trip?

    Adventure! What a wonderful word! Our SC Leadership Trip to Philly, as well as many other long distant trips I have been on, has reassured to me the importance of adventure. Where some might truly hate adventure and try at all cost to avoid it, I strongly believe that taking risks, trying new things, and getting outside of your comfort zone is the most advantageous decision that anyone could make! This is simply because when you take these exciting and new chances, that is where you often learn the most. My trip example of adventure can be seen in this picture of one of our daring and fearless Leadership Team advisers – Cheryl Rude! Running up no other than the “Rocky Steps” themselves, Cheryl was demonstrating to our entire team how to try something new and exciting without a care in the world (other than falling up the Rocky Steps!) With a grin from ear to ear, this demonstrates that though trying new things may be risky and somewhat nerve-wrecking, the thrill and experience you open yourself up to can overflow with an abundance of joy and laughter. I can remember back in January or February Cheryl’s speech on what famous aspects Philadelphia had to offer, and the Rocky Steps were one of them. Now, being able to witness them in person and connect Cheryl’s history talk to the actual experience in person was very adventurous. There was even a group of us that joined right along! In addition to this though, there was several other adventures throughout the entire trip well worth the initial step of staying yes, I want to go/try this out – ex: the awesome Mediterranean brunch meal; waking up early to run across the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, etc!Read more

    The Lofty Life

    May 9, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    While many of us Kansans get to experience the lush and green openness of backyards, open fields, and pastures, the people of Philadelphia have a very different style to their living that requires more compact living quarters and varying structures to live in. Thus, there is the loft. This picture features SC Leadership students entertaining themselves with the loft activities. Later that evening there would not be much rest for anyone, due to noisy neighbors on all sides - up, down, and side to side! #wherestheopenspaceRead more

    A Night of Noise

    May 10, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C


    It seems like no surprise to locals that their pets are nearly about to commit suicide, so they truly must be experts in the whole ledge walking scene! Buddy here has been barking for hours on end this evening, guarding his perch atop his owner's 3rd floor loft. Even pets have to adapt to the city life! #dontdoitlittlebuddyRead more

    Purposeful Paintings

    May 10, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 11 °C

    Part of the beauty of Philadelphia lies in the paintings that appear up and down the streets of the busy city! Not only are they very appealing on the sides of buildings and wall openings, but they each possess a unique and purposeful meaning. Can you find the meaning in this one? #purposefulpaintingsRead more

    On the dotted line

    May 11, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 55 °F

    Signing off on whatever harm that might come to us packaging 1401 boxes of food commodities. Little did I know that broken fingernails, bruised hip, cardboard burns, cramped fingers, and under-used muscles were ahead...Read more
