Molwene to all my friends, family, sponsors, and other readers!
I have recently returned home from an adventure in southern Africa. I was traveling with a program called International Student Volunteers, which is dedicated to sending groups of students to every corner of the world, giving them an educational and fun experience while they learn to give back. My program in particular sent me to southern Africa.
We began in Cape Town, South Africa working with an organization called African Impact. This branch of the organization worked in community development, especially in preschools in underdeveloped areas. I did volunteer work here for two weeks then moved on to two weeks of adventure tourism. We traveled from Johannesburg, South Africa through Swaziland and Mozambique and participated in activities ranging from spelunking to a classic African safari.
I originally wanted to keep this blog while I was abroad, but I was informed that it would be fairly impossible to do so. Which was true. Instead, I kept a daily journal. This blog will be my attempt at converting that journal into something people might want to read. I will try to make at least one entry every day to keep this blog feeling genuine, so please check back as often as you like.
