Mimi Keebler in New Orleans
A Different Kind of Spring Break | 05/20/2014
On spring break from Eastern Michigan University in 2008, Mimi Keebler visited New Orleans with a few friends to work on rehabilitating houses after Hurricane Katrina. Mostly working in the Lower 9th Ward, Mimi and her friends helped insulate and paint houses and cook and serve in community centers. She learned a lot about New Orleans' beautiful culture and heard many stories of struggle. Mimi fell in love with the people, sights, sounds and food of The Big Easy.
