Students at Fairfield University are preparing for Pope Francis' visit to the U.S. next week.
Fairfield's Allanah Dykes is one of 50 college students chosen from around the U.S. to become a member of a "Digital Street Team."
The special project is sponsored by the Magnificat Foundation and Aleteia, a Christian faith network.
Dykes was the winner of a national lottery that only granted access to 80,000 people to see the pope inside of Central Park.
Dkyes says she will be live-tweeting the pope's visit using @PopeisHope, in addition to tweeting and posting to Instagram for Fairfield University and her own personal blog.
