I Took A Selfie With Obama -- My First Two Weeks in Uganda

Hello everyone! I have so much to say and it hasn’t even been a full two weeks here. It feels like two months honestly. If you didn’t see my last post, I was our group’s “blogger” for this week so I posted a rundown of what’s happened so far on the Carpe Diem Education website. 743 more words
