“Part of my personal philosophy has always been that in order to be a complete and fully realized person, you have to see and experience everything possible and that I could never completely understand myself without seeking to understand others. …A few months ago… I discovered the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program and decided that this was exactly the type of unique experience that I always sought after and I was anxious to become a part of it. I didn’t know then how profoundly this experience would affect me.”
