NOTE: I have been so busy that I haven't had a moment to write the blog that fully describes this trip. And I'm realizing that maybe it's because I don't need to share every thing about it and that's just fine. Pictures tell 1,000 words anyways right? lol Just know that this trip was everything I needed and more. And the people that I met will always have a special place in my heart.
Where do I begin? Words can't even begin to explain what I just experienced. Photos? Yeah, those are cute but they won't capture the complete essence of what I saw. Video? Maybe it'll help, but it's still not enough. What I experienced in Israel was completely transformational (on so many levels - professionally, personally, spiritually) and I'm STILL processing it.
I've traveled out of the country many times now but I have not encountered anything quite like the Schusterman Foundation's Reality Music Program. I began this journey with little expectations. I mean, I looked up pictures of Tel Aviv, scoped out the hotels and I checked the news to see what's been happening recently in Isreal. But overall, I didn't know what to expect at all. I looked in our closed Facebook group to see who would be going to Israel with us and surprise (not surprised) my fam Shanti Das and Kawan "KP" Prather were coming! I mean I was already happy to be traveling with my LVRN fam Justice and Sean, but knowing that I was nominated to go on this trip with people I've looked up to my whole life?!?! Mind blown.
Now that I'm home and i've had a chance to look back over all the photos and videos, I'm just like, "Did that really happen? Did I just travel to Israel with 50 amazing people? Yep, sure did. Did my life just change forever? my whole world enhanced to new heights? YES. DEFINITELY."
My dear friend, Alex Colby aka Kung Pow Meow, put together an amazing recap of our trip! Please check it out. And watch for a special surprise that I found in Israel's biggest radio station!
