When I was first told that I would be the only guy on the trip, I got excited… then not so excited… Not sure how the dynamic will be in an 8 versus 1 situation but right now everyone is extremely friendly! However, we have not started living together yet!
Am I nervous? More excited. I can’t wait to meet all the children, eat the food, SEE THE ANIMALS!! I can’t wait to meet Simba. Im 80% sure he lives in Zambia.
I will be volunteering at the Racecourse Community School for orphans and vulnerable children. What am I most excited about? Working with the kids! I can’t wait to try new games and lesson plans. I also can’t wait to see how our (North American education system) lesson plans fare in their British education system.
If it works I will smile. If it fails I will still smile in front of the class because that is how I cope with awkward situations.
P.S. There are only 2 washrooms with 1 shower (between 8 women and 1 guy) … As the movie Hunger Games puts it: “May the odds be ever in your favour.”
