AFRICA...


One of the many experiences I had in Tanzania, was teaching and answering questions on HIV/AIDS in the local schools. These children had very basic knowledge on what AIDS is, and how they received this destructive force. We would open up with one simple question: "Raise your hands if you know someone personally who has AIDS or has died of AIDS?" Every hand would go up. These children craved knowledge of this virus and how they could prevent it.


I learned some sweet drumming skills


Seriously!?


My beautiful head wrap


In an orphanage of 40+ kids from the ages of 3 months old to 4 years old. It was run by nuns who weren't paid or given funding. They relied solely on donations to feed, clothe, and care for these children
