    Falling in love with Kenya has nothing to do with the tangible aspects of the experience, I fell in love with Kenya because she taught me to be the person I have always wanted to be, igniting my truth, accelerating my teaching in a way I didn’t think was possible. AYP Teacher Training gave me the ability to see the courage, the beauty, the work, the rhythm and the joy of Kenya in my own soul. The motherland pulls back hard because it is there, on her soil, with her people, I have found the strength to the be teacher, leader, sister, daughter, wife, friend I always wanted to be. The paradox is not lost on me, even though I am there to teach, assist, educate…it is the people of Kenya that have taught me how to live my life. ON FIRE.

  • I am falling in love with this place, these people, but I am really falling in love with myself

    "What is happening here, every emotion has been sparked in this one short yet long, perfect day. We started our morning with a Safari ride, where I got to see animals that I dreamt of seeing when I was younger right in front of me. We then went to the Masai village, to help put the finishing touches on a school being built in the community. What followed was a ceremony on a pile of cow dung. I am not making this up. I am still laughing over this, happiness bubbling out of me. A group of 100 people jumping up and down over and over, in a big pile of poop. In a strange way it was perfect, an experience I am not sure I will know how to put into words when I go home. Tonight, I climbed to the top of the dinner tower and stared at the stars, naming the stars after people in the training. To remind myself that we are all bright lights in this world, when we part ways in 2 days they will still shine on in my heart. That I can look up and remember everyone and this time, very romantic novel vibes but that is what Kenya is doing to me - I am falling in love with this place, these people, but I am really falling in love with myself."
