I’m starting this blog up again as I begin a new chapter in my life. It’s been over a year since I’ve last posted here. Since then, I completed my internship with the Kenya Equity in Education Project, wrote my thesis, and graduated from the University of Toronto after a hectic year of juggling studies with part-time work.
My next step is a fellowship in international development management with the Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC). As part of the fellowship, I will be travelling to Arua, Uganda for 8 months to support the monitoring and evaluation of the foundation’s work in strengthening education systems in the West Nile region of the country.
The activities I have planned for the next 7 days include organizing paperwork, changing my mind 30 times about which pairs of pants to bring, and spending valuable time with friends and family (including my two nephews, 2 year old Jack and 1 week old Sam). I fly out of YYZ on August 4th and will be travelling through London, Nairobi, and Kampala en route to Arua.
I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to grow personally and professionally while living in the beautiful country of Uganda. Stay tuned!
