Plassmeyer (Ď06): Since the Holocaust trip, Iíve successfully
completed my first year at Notre Dame. It was awesome-- I really believe
that Iím exactly where Iím meant to be. Iím playing volleyball for St.
Maryís, an all-girlsí school affiliated with Notre Dame that sits right
across the street. Iíve declared my majors, Psychology, Sociology, and
Spanish (which I know sounds like a lot, but Iím already almost done
with Spanish, and Psych and Soc. overlap a bit). I just got home from a
mission trip to Reynosa, Mexico, where we built a house for a family of
seven that had been living under two tarps. I really do think about the
Holocaust trip a lot--Iím doing what I can to get invovled with stopping
whatís going on in Darfur; I am friends with Senator Sam Brownback, who
has been playing a major role in US invovlement through Congressional
Bills and Acts and such. Iíve lent out many books that we received last
year, and people are always eager to hear stories and look at pictures
from the trip. I miss everyone!
