My heart flutters

When I think about volunteering in a rural village in Western Tanzania my heart flutters with excitement, I have not felt this way in over a decade.   I start to dream and strategize ways to be an agent of positive change.   

I am at a crossroads in my life.  I have had a decade of growth, exploration, and reflection.  I am ready to take my insights into the next chapter of my life as I refine my career goals.  I have something to give to the children and villagers of Mgaraganza: my experience, my passion, my compassion.

My intention is to help others, and yet I am aware that this experience is already transforming me.  I believe this experience will be mutually beneficial.  I will impart my knowledge of best practices in education to others and in return, I will bring back what I learn from a non-industrialized country that will further my impact in the U.S.
