Fatick, Senegal: My New Home Is Starting to Feel Like Home :)
Seeing the way people remembered Laura’s name after two years and the huge smiles they got on their faces when they saw her really touched my heart. Also, seeing the way Laura talked and interacted with everyone just so naturally, as I am sure she does in the US with her family and friends there, really left me in awe and opened my eyes to what this experience should really be about. Laura was one of the lucky volunteers like me who got to learn two languages at once so seeing her still being able to speak both French and Wolof really filled me with hope when I most needed it :) Laura sweetie, thank you so much for everything and for all of the great advice, having you here and seeing the way you interacted with your family and friends has been absolutely invaluable to my service :) Keep shining my love and know that I am always thinking about you especially when the neighbor kids call me by your name! Hahaha! Love you, girlie!
