Journey to Soweto
Posted on February 21 2017
My journey to South Africa was both inspirational as well and life changing. I went there with my good friend Siya to do service and give back to the children's home that raised him for most of his childhood before he was adopted. We spent a week getting to know the children and to start developing a relationship with staff. I facilitated a day for art appreciation for the kids where they wrote poetry, sketched, collaged, and painted an outdoor mural on one of the walls in their yard. I will be going back soon to continue to help keep the arts alive in their community.
