Bio: 
I am Christina, from Brisbane and I am a teacher for the last 7 years. A key objective for my trip was to get a charitable incentive of the teaching environment in Uganda. It was also to give me a physical opportunity to become involved in supporting a charity which helps children and communities in the most impoverished regions of Uganda by supporting Beacon of Hope Uganda. I experienced firsthand how my fundraising and on-the-ground presence in Uganda benefits the lives of so many.
Volunteering Experience: 
I will admit it, I cried myself to sleep the first night. But don’t worry, I cried myself the last night for the opposite reason. Treat the people you meet there as family and they will do the same. I miss Uganda and all my friends there so much. I miss Rolexes (omelette wrapped in chappati with cabbage, tomatoes and onions), hopping on the back of a bodaboda (motorcycle taxi), the African time, the music, the dance, the “muzungu how are you?” from children, the avocadoes, pineapple, sweet bananas, using rain as an excuse to relax or coming late, having Isaac on my side as my bodyguard in nightclubs. I was excited to return to a world where pedestrians have the right of way, but transitioning into the life at home was strange. Thank you Isaac and the team for making my stay in Uganda meaningful
