I Never Wanted that Day to End

My humanitarian trip to Tanzania was one of my most valuable educational experiences. I had the unique opportunity to lead the science demonstrations at the city school for orphans and with the help of an interpreter, I spoke to over two hundred school children about the importance of their education. I based my message on the phrase “you can count the seeds in an orange, but you cannot count the oranges in a seed,” to help them realize the impact their decisions would have on future generations.



That Was the Essence of Marafiki Africa

As we arrived to our camp in Kenya, a group of us volunteers decided we wanted to go exploring to find some monkeys at a nearby dried up ravine. We didn’t make it far out of the campsite before we heard this thundering noise behind us. We turned around to see 15 grinning kids stampeding towards us at full speed carrying a soccer ball. One of the little girls begged for me to hold her, and as I did she just buried her face in my neck and would not let me go – playing soccer with a little Kenyan girl attached to your body is not easy!
