Restoring a Broken, yet Whimsical Nation
During my month in Uganda, the people there captured my heart. I will forever remember the joy, hope, and love that was deeply rooted in the hearts of the people there.

A Hole in Her Throat
Here is a blog from, current World Racer Stacey Hume. It is a beautiful depiction of the many emotions and brokenness I felt while on the Race. I knew that Africa would be different.

While I was in The Boss’ office, learning another way to enter the same information in a spreadsheet, just with different colors in a different order, The Boss received an email requiring the assistance of Our Manager.
