"My favorite Pepperdine tradition is Project Serve, which is where students have the chance to spend their spring break serving in domestic and international communities. I have had the opportunity to work with environmental nonprofits through Project Serve in Puerto Rico and Waco, Texas. These experiences have given me a humbling perspective on the world around me, while allowing me to learn how to serve well and build community with my teammates."
Avery was humbled and challenged while serving abroad as part of Project Serve in Puerto Rico.
