Making Memories and Learning to Relax

While in Uganda, I was able to go on excursions and travel around the country. One of the most memorable things I did was visiting the equator. It’s a landmark that reminds me of my place in the world.

While traveling around Uganda, I was able to meet people from all different cultures. I enjoyed talking to local people about their lives, experiences, and thoughts.  Being around others reminded me to live in the moment and not worry so much about the future. I started working at a very young age and never had time to relax. In high school, I worked at a coffee shop in order to save money for college. While in community college I worked three jobs. While living in Kabale I met people who worked as many jobs as I previously did but still had time to smile and relax. They taught me that work and school are not everything but I should keep time for myself to laugh with others and enjoy my life.
