Dear Friends and Family,
Welcome to my site! I have been accepted to participate in an amazing competitive internship program with the Foundation for Sustainable Development (FSD)! This June, with my brand-new degree in Biology from Kalamazoo College in hand, I will leave all that is comfortable and predictable behind me to spend 10 weeks living, working, and learning in Mombasa, Kenya! This is not a vacation, but an opportunity to empower and contribute to an amazing program in this local community using FSD’s successful infrastructure and methodology.
I have designed this blog to gain support for my internship in Mombasa, Kenya, as well as to raise awareness about the work done by international grassroots organizations. By clicking on Support my trip you can make a donation to help get me to Kenya!

This June, I will be receiving my Bachelors degree in Biology from Kalamazoo College. I am very excited about this opportunity to both learn and serve before I work as an EMT, go on to study Osteopathic Medicine, and eventually serve in an international health organization like Doctors Without Borders.
