Duxbury High School alumni are expected to go to college after graduation. It’s a reality, whether we want to admit it or not. My parents expected the same for me when I was born and couldn’t even imagine me flying halfway across the earth at eighteen to live in a developing country, but this is exactly what I have done.
I have always loved school, but after four years of high school, I knew I needed a break before attending college, and volunteering in Africa has always been a dream of mine. So against my parents’ initial wills, I booked a six-month volunteer trip the East African country of Tanzania.
