This is my first trip to Guatemala with Hope’s In and I’m really looking forward to going. I heard about Hope’s In though several friends a few years ago and have attended a couple Hope’s In Style events since then.  I have been wanting to go on the trip for a while so am very excited that its just a few weeks away. I’m most looking forward to meeting the families there, working with the kids, and helping in the community. I know this is going to be a great experience and I can’t wait to go! -Sarika, Barrington High School
