I love my job for MindLeaps! This year, MindLeaps decided to train some older students to be teachers at the MindLeaps Centers in their respective countries. It was my job to train these young adults from across Africa in the MindLeaps Contemporary Curriculum so that MindLeaps could hire them as Contemporary Instructors. I worked 10 hours a day and lived in a humble house with the students MindLeaps selected. I truly became incredible friends with these students and hold them close in my heart. I taught and lived with some of the strongest young men and women I will ever meet. For example, my student Zani is a refugee from the Congo who now lives in Uganda where she found refuge in the MindLeaps center. My other student Emmy, survived the Rwanda genocide in 1994, and is now working for MindLeaps and hopes to graduate college one day. The resilience and strength of my students astounded me. It was so fun living with people my age from across Africa.
