Preparations To Leave

This week seems to have flown by the quickest. My apologies for not blogging as much. I will still post entries when I get back in the states.

As we are preparing to say our goodbyes, I find myself to be a bit sad....I'm not ready to leave. I only find comfort in kowing that I have accomplished what I promised I would do at my first meeting with my organization. But I still wish I had more time to do more....In South Africa, you can ALWAYS do more. And while I know that I have done alot, I want to do more.

I am torn...how am I suppose to adjust to the mentality of the states after being here. I came to South Africa a socio-economically concious women....but nothing could have ever prepared me for what I experienced here. After working here three weeks, I would have never expected my experience and exposure to drastically affect my life...the way i think, look at things, love, and believe.

I am leaving South Africa....with the awareness of a concious consumer, a person who considers the benefits of labourers.

I dont know how to explain what I recieved...but I do know that life deals you things for a reason. My trip here was definitely not just an academic course, it was a trip that taught me about life!

Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrica!
