Meet my family! ❤️

From left to right: Amkelo (6), Senanile (8), Bandile (5), Bayanda (2)

The kids love to dance, sing, and play outside! I’ve even introduced them to games like ‘red light, green light’ and ‘hot hands.’

The children are extended family, my Sisi and Gogo help take care of them!

My Sisi Thandiwe’s son Menzi (16). Although he’s quiet he has a big personality! 

My gogo! She is an angel. 👼🏿 She loves when I speak SiSwati! 

My bosisi, Sakhile (she doesn’t live on the homestead but she comes to visit every weekend) and Thandiwe! They’ve made me feel so special since my arrival. 

A couple weeks ago I made popcorn and we had a movie night and watched Shrek! They looooved it. I can’t wait to create more memories.

I've decided to uproot my life and dedicate it to serving in the Peace Corps for 27 months. Yuuuuup, you read that right. God has helped me redefine limitations. A dear friend once told me that, "boxes are for shoes, you never know how great you are until you break out of the box and see what you are really made of!" This blog will chronicle my adventures as a Peace Corps Youth Development Volunteer in the Kingdom of Swaziland! You'll read about my highest of highs compounded with the lowest of lows - raw and unfiltered. Please enjoy the view. :) *The contents of this blog are mine and do not reflect any position of the U.S. government or the Peace Corps.*
