Au Revoir

As I sit in my room back in NYC I write this post with a heavy heart. No words can ever describe how much this trip meant to me and how much I’ve truly learned from it. Thank you to everyone who helped me make this trip possible and above all thank you to all the amazing family and friends I made in Senegal. The people I encountered in this country are beyond amazing, so genuine and truly selfless. I’ll miss everyone I’ve met along the way and will cherish all the bonds I’ve created. Thank you for giving me a name I’ll treasure always and making me feel like one of your own. A piece of me will forever remain in Senegal & let me actually rephrase my statement because this story isn’t over, I know I will be back in Senegal soon.

À bientôt/ leegi leegi

Love Always,
