Hey guys! Long time no see! We have sooooo much to ketch up on, but I’ve been at the academy for almost a week (6 days & Ethiopia a total of 26 days) and I had my very first home visit today!
Debre Zeyit is TOTALLY different from Addis! Its a lot more chill, and a lot less people! I haven’t gone…
Heyyy Guys! Long time no see! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuut I made to…..
Yes after 14 hours, and over 7k miles! I made it & made it safely! I have actually been here for about a week….And I LOVE IT!!
I got to volunteer at “The Ford School” for only a couple hours, but it was pretty awesome (can you find me in the picture above?)! I was a nervous at first, but the children seem to really enjoy me & kept asking about my background. It kinda funny that “African American” is a foreign concept for them. After going through a few periods of 5th & 6th graders, we had free time and I got to see most the kids pre-K through 8th grade.
This is Anna, I was sitting on the stairs and she just came up to me and laid her head on my shoulder. Lol my heart melted! I’ll be posting a couple cute videos in a separate post!
Also, I was fortunate enough to tour both the beautiful African Union & The US embassy! The AU was soooo beautiful and BIG!
*I have sooo much more to say, and I’ll be posting later, but Its pretty late (we are 7hrs ahead) and I have church in the morning! *Cues Praise break*
BUT if you want to keep in contact with me, download this app called “Viber”.
This app is available on both iOS (Phones & Macs) and Andriod systems. Its completely free if you have wifi, but you’re able to text and/or call me! Although Im not sure how frequent my wifi availability will be, you can still write me on FB or twitter! I also update my instagram pretty frequently (@NapturalGirl).
Thanks!!! I’ll be posting more shortly, God willing! I love y’all!
