As I reflect on my 2 weeks in Uganda, I am glad that I was able to get so large an amount accomplished while also being able to enjoy my time in such a beautiful place. Immersing myself in a new culture and working to build relationships with the people I met made for an invaluable learning experience. As advised by more than a few wise individuals, I made sure to do more listening than talking while on this trip (hence the title of my blog).
I hope that everyone who has been reading was touched by one or more of the stories I have shared on this page. I have appreciated the encouragement and input that I have received through blog comments & e-mails. Also, I am very grateful to those who helped sponsor me on my trip. Thank you; Thank you; Thank you!
I now am heading back up to Grand Rapids to begin Stage 2 & 3 of my Honors Project: Business plan revision & Major paper on the topic of Human-Centered Design. I do plan to continue posting project status updates on my blog, though quite infrequently.
So long for now,
