Going on this trip was definitely a spur of the moment decision for me. I signed up the day I was told about it and here I am six months later, less than three days from hopping on a plane to the motherland. I’m freaking out to say the least.
One thing I know for sure is that traveling to Uganda and shooting this documentary is not something that everybody is fortunate enough to experience. This is going to be an amazing adventure and so different than anything I have ever done in my life.
Although we’ve met a bunch of times over this past semester to be prepared for what Africa will be like, I still don’t feel like I’m truly ready for what we’re going to see while traveling the country. I’m nervous and scared, but in a good way. This is going to be a huge eye-opener for me and I’m excited to see how this changes the way I think about life. I know that traveling through the slums and seeing real poverty and desperation will make me appreciate what I have much more and really show me how blessed I am.
There are about a million thoughts and emotions going on in my head right now I can’t even get them on paper…. so I’ll leave my post at that.
Stay tuned to my adventure… it should be interesting (:
