Hello everyone! My name is Paul Talty and I am a second year Health Science major on the Physical therapy track. I come from a small town in the panhandle of Florida, Niceville, where I live on a small farm (and yes everyone is nice there!). I am the youngest of 7 and I grew up in a strong Catholic family. I was pretty involved in my parish back home, so when God blessed me with the opportunity to come to the University of Florida, I knew I wanted to get involved in Catholic Gators. What I didn't know was how great it would be. This community has really challenged and helped me grow as well as given me an incredible group of friends. As cliche as it sounds, it has become my new home. When I'm not here at school you can find me on the side of a mountain hanging between trees in my ENO, or looking for a new adventure.
This is my first opportunity to go on a mission trip and I couldn't be more pumped. I'm always striving to help and serve others, and I felt as though my prior experience in construction would help on this mission trip. As excited as I am, I can't do this without you! Please consider donating to my fundraising page, anything is appreciated and I can't thank you enough for your support! Please pray for us as we will all be praying for you!
