I got more out of 1 month than I ever anticipated. I got confirmation that nursing and global health are indeed what I need and want to do in life. I received reinforcement that although all human beings have an innate right to health, this is not the case, and that must be changed. I made lifelong friends from all over the US and Uganda that I would have otherwise never met. I rafted the Nile, got my chocolate bar stolen by a baboon on a safari, stargazed on a nightly basis, hiked to waterfalls, began a new language, and ate chapatti, so so much chapatti. Most importantly, I learned a new sense of appreciation, respect, compassion, knowledge and wisdom that can only be learned from another culture. I wish I could've spent another month in Bududa, but I'm thankful for all Uganda and FIMRC gave to me in the time I had with them.
