I can hardly believe it is already here! Tomorrow I will be leaving well before the sun rises for my next adventure: Ethiopia. I will be one of nine new media journalists heading with The Johns Hopkins International Reporting Project to Ethiopia to report on newborn health. It is bound to be a life-changing experience and I can hardly wait to share what I learn on my blog. I’ve done a ton of reading and research over the past few months yet I’m sure nothing will prepare me for our visits especially in rural villages. I will be gone for two weeks and am flying directly to a wedding in Chicago all in the same 24 hours afterwards. It is going to be quite an adventure!
The best part of all is I will be traveling with a wonderful friend and fellow advocate/mom/blogger Elizabeth Atalay of Documama.org who I met through blogging and working together at World Moms Blog, Mom Bloggers for Social Good and ONE. We both share a passion for travel and using our voice to try to change the world.
Here are a few posts on our upcoming trip.
I will be posting as much as I can via my blog, my Facebook page, instragram and twitter. The hashtag for the trip is #EthiopiaNewborns if you would like to follow along.
