Kayla Macintosh – First year – Marketing and History major
When I first heard about 5D4H it really got my attention. In the past I’ve volunteered with the Calgary Peace Run, The Mustard Seed, and Inn from the Cold.
Why I am doing this:
I am passionate about social justice and awareness, as well as helping the homeless and other things going on around us. It feels like something you need to experience first hand to truly understand what its like to be homeless so I hope this event will help me understand the struggles homeless people undergo daily.
What will be the hardest part?
The most challenging part to me, probably the cold! I have very bad circulation so I hope my sleeping bag is warm enough.
What I will miss the most:
What I will miss most will probably be choosing the food I get to eat! Also definitely my family.
