The Leap of Faith

Hello everyone! Karibuni!

Welcome to my blog, a place to share my thoughts, feelings and experiences with all of you as I prepare to spend my summer living halfway across the world.

First, an introduction – My name is Anisah and I have just completed my second year in the Health Sciences Program at Western University in London, Ontario (Yes, there is a London Ontario!!). A few months ago I made the bold decision to apply to the Western Heads East Internship Program which has led to me to where I am today – sitting at the London Heathrow Airpot awaiting my connecting flight that will eventually take me to my home for the next 3 months – Mwanza, Tanzania (Also my dad’s hometown – how cool!)

While I am faced with many uncertainties with what to expect upon arrival, I am confident that this experience will provide me with the opportunity to learn, grow and make lasting relationships with my fellow interns and host community.

Here’s to taking this leap of faith with you all!

Until next time, kwa heri!


Karibuni – welcome to all

Kwa Heri – goodbye
