On May 20th, I flew to the United Kingdom to serve on an International Service Project. This program is through my university, and is a project that is meant to send teams of students to various parts of the world to serve field workers in connection with our school in any way needed. My team was sent to the United Kingdom to work with students at Aston and Birmingham University. 

I was told that this would be a life-changing experience, and didn't quite believe it, but it definitely was. For three weeks, I lived in one small room with one bathroom that didn't have a door, shared with ten girls. What should have been an extremely stressful situation was actually not! We worked every day, coming home late at night exhausted and getting up early in the morning to begin again. To highlight some of our work:

-we did childcare for a four-day retreat for a church in the countryside (and I learned that I actually work very well with kids, despite my fear of dropping them).
-we helped rebuild an abandoned building that will be used to house a community center in a rough area of town.
-helped gather donations (like clothes and other baby supplies) for a non-profit women's health center called Stillwaters, as well as spreading the word of this organization to various doctor's offices.
-made friends with several students from Aston and Birmingham Uni, and through them were able to reach out and serve these students through free food and revision events. a lot more, but those are just some highlights! I'm very glad to have had this opportunity to go out and serve communities in an area that most people write off as easy. My team made a difference in the lives of our field workers and the people we served, and I'm very honored to have been able to participate on the International Service Project!

Hello all, my name is Nyx, formerly known as NightRunner, sometimes referred to as Emily. I'm an undergraduate student working on my BS in Communication Disorders (Speech Language Pathology). I like chocolate, animals, my boyfriend, and drawing on my homework.

Unfortunately this dA account is pretty neglected. I hope that once these busy college years are done, I can get back to making pretty pictures in my spare time while making cashmonies as a speech therapist.

Feel free to shoot me a message or a comment! When I see it, I guarantee I'll reply. I like talking to people. (: just don't be creepy okay.

Hello! I was wondering if you wanted to join my group called Bisexual-Pride. It’s a group about Bisexual pride and accepts art about Bisexuality.

hey, how've you been?
Nyx-Aeterna Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Not too bad! Finished up my first year of college and taking a summer course that I'm studying for at the moment. xD How about yourself? 
feathered-equine Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2014  Student General Artist
that's cool, what classes are you taking?

I've been doing decent, almost have my associates in arts out of the way. Would have it by now if I didn't put off taking math classes, but since they're apparently needed for my transfer I have to take them, haha. After I transfer I'll be aiming towards my Bachelor's in Illustration (:

Ugh math classes. xD They suck. I still have to take stats; I'm saving that for spring or summer semester. >.< Bachelor's in Illustration is awesome!!! I'm working towards my Bachelor's in Communication Sciences and Disorders, and then will be going to get my masters right after bachelors, but I'll wait to see if I want a PhD or not. It would be if I want to do research on a university or hospital level. So I'm taking classes pertaining to communication/swallowing disorders, special education, ASL, and some basic level med school courses for the hospital field, though I'd prefer to work in school districts or therapy centers with children.
