To Ethiopia and Back: Grace Trimble & Emily Holsopple

This past July, a group of eight female student athletes traveled to Ethiopia as part of a week long service trip. It was the second consecutive year that the UK Athletics Department has led such a group. Nominated by their respective coaches, the delegation of student athletes spent ten days traveling across the country, serving those they encountered along the way stopping at places like a leprosy colony or a sports camp where they coached local children.

Two of those on the trip were A&S students Emily Holsapple, a biology major on the rifle team, and Grace Trimble, a political science major playing on the tennis team. In this podcast they discuss their service work and how this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will stick with them for years to come.
