Thank you David Bonderman!

Because of Mr. Bonderman's generosity, I have been given the opportunity to travel the world and learn about culture. As a Bonderman Travel Fellow I plan on traveling through Western and Eastern Europe, East Africa, Northern India and Southeast Asia. I am excited to experience new and amazing things that will better enable me to empower and inspire the next generation of young students.

This whole adventure is actually becoming real! The Bonderman was on the UW homepage today with a link to the official announcement. So now the whole world knows that I'm a Bonderman Fellow and I am very excited about sharing my passions with those who ask me about my travels...but I kinda enjoyed it when nobody knew :)

I have my first meeting with Brook Kelly on Monday and I'm super excited. By the way, Brook is freakin amazing...the coolest faculty I've met at UW (not to offend anybody else at all, Brook is just that awesome)

More updates will come as necessary.

And I got my camera! Canon Powershot G11...very nice
