While we were waiting for our flight at Chicago airport, I met Jane.Â She has long, pretty hair, and looked friendly. She also had a good taste in food.Â I mean who doesnâ€™t like bagels?
She is really excited to return home to Los Angeles from business in Chicago.Â Aside from returning home, Jane shows a ton of interest in the Alaska Great Lakes Project. She was wondering just how the entire project worked.
â€œEvery summer thereâ€™s a group of 8th graders and adults who go.Â We follow the FISH Philosophy: Make work play, Make their day, be there, and choose your attitude.â€
â€œSo this is kind of like a service project?â€ She asked enthusiastically.
I replied, â€œIt is kind of a service project.â€
â€œHow it began?â€ Jane asks.
â€œThe project started with the Exxon-Valdez Oil Spill.Â Our school sent a group of kids to investigate if the spill had any effects on the environment.â€ Asher informed her.
â€œWhich it did.â€ I added.
After a while of just plain old chatting, it was about time for us to go back to catch our flight.Â She was really interested in what we had to say.Â As we walked away Janeâ€™s flight was called to board, and we walked back to the gate.
