This blog will be a way for me to keep in touch with family and friends while I spend the summer in Swaziland. I will be working for Save the Children in Mbabane, the capital, and I’ll be working with their HIV/AIDS program.
I leave for Swaziland on June 4th and return August 7th, and right after that, I will be heading to Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine in New Orleans to begin working towards a degree in Public Health with a focus on International Health and Development. My air travel will take me through Washington D.C., Dakar, Senegal, Johannesburg, South Africa, and will finally land me in Manzini, Swaziland!
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be embarking on this (albeit short) adventure! I hope some of you will find this blog a useful way to keep in touch with me while I’m gone.
