Hello all! My name is Christian Abraham and I am a junior at Hercules High School. This summer I will be attending the Freedom and Justice program at Cornell University.
One of the many responsibilities of being an Ivy League cohort is to blog on a daily basis. Therefore, a few of the other ILCers, Don Gosney, and myself arrived at De Anza High School for the all-important blogging tutorial session earlier this afternoon. Unfortunately, due to the lack of wireless internet connection within the room, we did not begin until around 1:30 PM instead of 1 PM as scheduled.

Near the end of the session, Don went over the do's (act like an adult) and the do-not's (pack laundry detergent) before we depart and while we are in our summer colleges, as well as go over a list of necessary items to pack for the trip. Initially, I felt a bit overwhelmed by the thought of writing lengthy blogs for over three weeks. However, this session really helped to alleviate my worries and show me that the purpose of blogging is to only make me a better writer for college.
