Ah, I have finally done what I have set out to do! Well, almost…I mean, at least I’m closer than when I started. What was my task you ask? Beginning a blog! So, for my students, all of those times I said, “Hey, you will just be able to follow me on my blog while I’m in Africa,” but didn’t actually HAVE said blog…I do now.
So, the teacher in me needs to identify the objective of this blog, so here it goes…
Objective: People will read this blog and gain a fuller understanding of what it means to be human, feel empathy for others, and give of themselves fully, while living vicariously through me and my adventures in Africa, and the world.
I hope that through reading this blog you will be able to identify, if even at the most basic level, that we are all simply human. That no matter what your socio-economic status, or your level of education, or what faith you posses, that we can ALL do something, anything to benefit our world in a positive manner.
For my young readers, I hope that you can see yourselves in me. That I am a 25-year-old college graduate, that jumped out of my comfort zone! It isn’t easy to make huge life decisions that may or may not work out, but when God is at the center of all you do, what can you say when He asks you to help his people?
I will attempt to update this blog at least once a week 🙂 Bear with me, as I am new at this and I will be in Liberia for a month.
I hope you enjoy my musings 🙂
