Our arrival on the schooner Roseway came with a variety of mixed emotions; we were excited to get under way, but also nervous about the upcoming adventures on our voyage. We are thrilled to set sail and enjoy the unique experience of immersing ourselves in the environment of a tall ship. Living on board, working with a wide and diverse group of individuals, and delving into our new surroundings are all aspects in which we will continue to develop the skills needed for our lifetimes. As our time aboard begins, we look forward to becoming a better watch group through team-building and learning to be part of a well-rounded community. Despite our concerns about being away from family and the consistent worry about inclement weather, we consider ourselves fortunate to be part of the World Ocean School’s 2016 Summer Ambassador Program.
