Thank you in advance for your support and generosity. Service is my passion and I am thrilled to take part in a Service Immersion program to Tanzania. I will be traveling to Tanzania during my February vacation for 10 days to complete a service project and homestay in a rural village. Within the village, I will teach English to the young children. I look forward to being immersed in a new culture by participating in this once in a lifetime opportunity and living and being involved in a different community in ways I never could have imagined possible. I will be living with a host family, cooking ugali with my host mother, playing with my host brothers and sisters and learning how to dance and drum with the community. I will be exploring new lands on a safari as well. It as an honor to have this opportunity available to me, and I am blessed tobe able to have the ability to help others in such a powerful way. I am on this trip not only to teach as well as learn from the people I meet and places I go, but also to be in the moment and experience another walk of life I could never be able to any other way! For more information about the program I am going through along with my school, Notre Dame Academy, you can check out their website, www.globalroutes.org.
