In college, I went to Kenya. I've wondered for a long time how to write about the experience, and today I'm proud to share what I think is the most honest piece I could write about my time there.
Kenya was beautiful, and I'm so glad I went. It was amazing. But it didn't change my life, and that's okay.
"A lot of people expressed their desire to have a spiritual journey while in Kenya, while others talked about learning more about their own identities. I had more superficial and simple reasons for going: I wanted to experience something totally outside of anything I ever knew firsthand. I wanted the perspective that comes with that kind of adventure, but I didn’t feel the need to be impacted fundamentally by it."
