I felt super comfortable and safe being a part of this event, and I would absolutely return! It was amazing to meet so many amazing people, and it was so nice to be welcomed into their community.
This was such a great experience, I found myself wanting to help out more! Everyone there was so friendly, and it was so nice getting to meet such amazing people. I am so happy that I was able to take part in this experience and help in any way I could. I’ll be looking out for more experiences like this one in the near future!
I loved how this workshop made me reflect on how my consumption affects other people. I never thought about how so much waste impacts many different people from other regions of the world. It is insane to me how much waste we see just at this school, such as in the dining halls and how so much food gets tossed away. I also am learning how Botswana differs in their consumption than what is consumed in the West. For example, Botswanans tend to eat more salt, where Americans are very drawn to sugar. I loved how there was also discussion about eating healthier, more natural ingredients makes a positive impact too. I also found it very impactful how it was addressed that a lot of resources in schools don’t extend to all students, just those who have the privilege of affording them. I just found this experience very enlightening to see how consumption values differ depending on where you reside in the world.
