My name is Sarah. I’m a rising junior at Georgetown University, majoring in Anthropology and double-minoring in Government and African Studies. I love literature, tea, arguments, music, and other dangerous things. This picture implies that I may also enjoy tortoises and/or violently purple shirts.
“Safari” is one of the few East African words in the Oxford English Dictionary. But in Swahili, it doesn’t just mean driving around in an open-top van and looking at lions. Instead, it’s a word that refers to any kind of travel or journey, be it a day trip or an overseas voyage. And that’s what I do – travel, domestically and internationally, within my city and across the oceans. In a world as interconnected and interdependent as ours (regardless of what the current US administration may say), I believe that travel is an essential component of living fully and changing lives. I’m in love with getting my hands dirty and experiencing the world, and I hope you’ll join me.
