Scott's Journey to South Africa

Current Location

Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Hello exchange partners! I can't wait to share my journeys through South Africa with you! 


This past weekend was a long weekend with a combination of two holidays— Freedom Day and Worker's Day. We took the opportunity to explore more of South Africa up the coast from Port Elizabeth. 


An overview of my experience so far in South Africa, what I've learned, and what I'm excited to continue to do in the future! 

Field Notes

During my time in South Africa, I've had the privilege of working often with an organization called Masifunde that is working to alleviate poverty from Walmer township by uplifting young people. 


I participated in a dialogue hosted by Masifunde that gave men a chance to replace messages of toxic masculinity with positive masculinity, which means being caring and respectful of others.
