Testimonial: Katie Tredinnick, Ripon College

Katie Tredinnick

I have never missed a place as much as I have missed a loved one back home. But Tanzania is more than just a place. Tanzania welcomed me every day for four months with smiles from the fruit sellers, with knowledge from the Maasai who spoke proudly of their cattle during our interviews, and with conversations that challenged my view of the world. Tanzania taught me about hardships that had yet to cross my mind, while simultaneously instilling a blissful sense of peace. Tanzania shattered my comfort zone and pushed me to become a truer version of myself. For these reasons and numerous others that go unmentioned, Tanzania is a place that I will never forget.
