Take a sneak peak at the lives of Jess and I as we begin to settle in on our South Africa adventure. In this week’s episode you will see a true reflection of life at 17 Milborrow Road, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Stay tuned for future episodes that will explore Slangspruit Primary School, Kruger National Park, Cape town, and more! We hope you enjoy watching this as much as we enjoyed making it.
Hi, my name is Ariana! I am a fourth year Social Work student with a focus on child welfare and child protection. I am thrilled and grateful to receive the opportunity to be working with Ukulapha Community Outreach Project in South Africa. I currently work with children and teens of various demographics and I am excited to witness and be alongside similar work at Slangspruit Primary School. I am passionate about social justice and advocating for marginalized demographics. I believe that empathy is built by expanding your personal lens and recognizing your own positionality.
I am beyond excited for this experience that will point me in many unknown directions!
