And the Countdown Begins...

In 29 days, I'll be living in Canada.

My name is Michelle and I'm a senior at a Catholic liberal arts university. I'm majoring in History and am the Founding Editor-in-Chief of our school's student newspaper. I'm currently taking a class called Catholicism in the Professions, which requires me to complete 100 hours in an internship that integrates my faith with my profession.

In August, I was lucky enough to meet Father Thomas Rosica, CSB, who was appointed Consultor to the Pontifical Council for Social Communications by Pope Benedict XVI in February 2009 and is currently the Chief Executive of Salt and Light Media in Toronto, Canada. After interviewing with him, Fr. Rosica offered me a six week internship at S & L over my winter break.

I'm not really sure what to expect, but I'm sure the experience will be rewarding. In order to keep family and friends updated on my experiences, I wanted to create a blog to document my time up north. Subscribe to my posts or bookmark my page to check for updates. I plan to post at least two to three times a week and will also have videos and photos to share.

Right now I only ask that everyone keep me in their prayers. Not only am I facing a time crunch of trying to finish my course work before I leave, but the prospect of leaving my family and friends for such an extend amount of time is leaving me a little heartbroken.

I appreciate all the support and love.
