How to pack for abroad

  If you are anything like me, you understand how difficult it is to try to pack for an entire month in Europe it is a rather difficult task to complete. Aside from trying to decide what to pack, I think that figuring out how to pack it all is the most difficult. This makes it hard to even decide what you could possibly need for a month abroad.

See ya soon, Africa!

My experience in Zambia was nothing short of AMAZING. We set up clinics that allowed us to help almost 1000 people medically and spiritually. We were able to do health screenings and eye screenings and pray for the people of Zambia that came through the clinics.

Academics: I am studying at Anglo American University. It is a small, private university that is taught all in English and located right near the city center. AAU is absolutely beautiful. The interior is filled with intricate molding work and large chandeliers. When I’m there, I feel like I’m in a castle or a fancy house, not a school. For the first three weeks, I took The Legacies of Totalitarianism: Post-Totalitarian Europe. It was...
