Earlier this year, Somer spent four months living and volunteering in the country of Uganda. This eye opening experience has solidified Somer's desire to make a difference not just in our world, but in her local community. Somer saw firsthand the effects of poverty on a society and she believes that by serving our local communities and then reaching out to our national and international community, this world can truly see positive change.
