Repost from Ambur, 2014 Ghana Participant @bur4prez “In honor of my last night in the village of Atabu…A year ago today I would have never imagined spending 7 weeks away from home, let alone in the birthplace of civilization. What started as a simple conversation amongst friends has now manifested into an experience I could never describe in an Instagram post. But what I can say is that I have had the opportunity to both teach and learn from young men and women in a nation unlike my own, and yet so welcoming and of such rich history. In just a little under 2 months I have learned how to hand wash clothing, bathe using buckets of cool water and even make jollof rice. But most importantly I have learned the meaning of community and true genuine friendship all while contributing to a cause greater than myself. In addition I was able to spread the message of JKIW. One of the main reasons I decided to travel as a volunteer was because I understand the importance of service in all aspects of life. A future in politics symbolizes to me an opportunity to serve in a greater capacity. In this way, my experience speaks to my own vision and that of JKIW that seeks to acknowledge the efforts of young professionals and intellectuals in an increasingly global society. The best is always yet to come, but “just know I’m working” along the way. 🌍✨ #Ghana2014 #OperationCrossroadsAfrica #JustKnowImWorking”
