I’m headed to Africa again next month and I cannot wait to get there.
I will be in Zambia for ten days in July! I need to soak that in for a moment. The trip has been on my calendar for a few months, but it’s quickly becoming real now that I have less than twenty days to go before I travel to the southern part of Africa for the first time.
In May I was selected as a new media journalist by John’s Hopkins’ International Reporting Project to report on global health, specifically HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis in Zambia. So for now on every post I write before, during, and after the trip to Zambia I will identify myself as an International Reporting Project Zambia Fellow. It does have a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? While this isn’t my first fellowship, it’s the first that has allowed me to travel outside of the country. For that, I am extremely grateful. I was so happy when my Zambian Visa arrived earlier this month. And I am even more thrilled, probably more thrilled than anything, that all of my vaccinations are up to date.Click here to read more
