South Africa!!!!

Hi everyone! Today is my last day of orientation at Ingwe before heading into my host community. I will be living in Crags, South Africa for the next 5 weeks with a wonderful family who I met yesterday. These past 10 days have been amazing and I’ve challenged myself both physically and mentally. Whether it was repelling off a cliff or tackling the ideas of development, I’ve had awesome support from all my group and program leaders. I’m excited for the community, family, and caregivers I will be working and living with, and the new relationships I will form in the coming weeks. I hope everyone is doing well and is enjoying themselves. I’ll try and blog more soon!

Hello family, friends, and everyone else! This September I will be embarking on a seven month trip to six different countries. I will traveling to South Africa, India, Thailand, Cambodia, Equador, and Peru. Throughout the trip I will be using this blog page to keep everyone posted on the amazing people, food, sights, and adventures that await! I’m not sure how often I will be able to update my blog due to internet access, but I will try my best to keep everyone in the loop. Thanks for all the support I’ve received, I’m very excited for the upcoming year!
