Hannah (USMC) writes about her first days in Rwanda at Wisdom School in Musanze
Final Reflection: Living in Rwanda this past summer was an incredible experience that
I will remember for the rest of my life.
Final Reflection: I had done a fair amount of travelling, but none of my
previous experiences compare to the duration and
challenges that I would face in Rwanda.
Final Reflection: Coming to Rwanda I had no idea what to expect from my placement, except to
experience a life radically different from my own in Canada.
What’s Changed: When I first arrived to my host community it was hard for me to comprehend the level of poverty some of the people lived in.
What’s Changed: When I first arrived I was very eager to fit in and get along with my family and the kids at my placements.
A Significan Person: My special relationship is with my host sister.
A Significant PErson: My significant relationship began a week after I had been living in my host community.
First Impressions: I remember our small bus turning off the highway and asking “Is this it? Is this Sabanagrande?”
First Impressions: A caffeine like rush of excitement and nervousness approached me as I inched closer to the city.
My first impressions of my new homestay in Sabanagrande, Honduras (Tara/STM/Honduras/2012)
First Impressions of Comayagua (April/STM/Honduras/2012)
My host community was more similar to my own community than I ever imagined.

This blog is the story of my many first impressions and the man who change the way I view new things forever.
