David is a sophomore at Vanderbilt University and this semester he is studying abroad in Kenya! Although our communication has been limited, he has shared with us a few of his experiences so far. In his study abroad to Africa, he lived with a host family and has visited traditional healers, hospitals, and counseling centers. He is experiencing culture shock, as he is still getting used to the cold showers, animals roaming around, and what he describes as reckless driving (there are no traffic lights or stop signs). Along with the physical changes in environment, David is learning a lot about the racial and nationality dynamics in Africa. He has come to discover that the LGBTQ+ community is almost nonexistent and that some tribes do not even have a word to describe LGBTQ+. He is learning a lot about the culture and about himself. He says that he looks forward to everyday because there is always something new to experience.
