My name is Laura Claydon and I'm a sophomore double majoring in psychology and sociology. I'm from the Vail Valley in Colorado. I've never been out of the country which is one of the many reasons I'm excited to be going to Uganda. This trip has seemed so far away and now we are in Amsterdam waiting to get on our last flight that will take us to Uganda! To say I'm not nervous would be a lie but I can't wait to learn about Uganda, its people and its culture. I'm especially looking forward to our visit to Luzira prison because I am interested to see what differences there are between prison in Uganda and prison in the United States. I can't wait to meet everyone!
