Troublesome Super Bowl Advertisements

There were a few that stuck out to me this year. One was the Ram commercial that invoked a lot of (questionable? inappropriate?) ethos by quoting MLK, but we’ll save that for another conversation. The one I really want to highlight was Matt Damon and his clean...

Do You Believe in Self Love?

One of the best parts about living in the co.space is having dinner with a guest every Wednesday. The co.space house managers and owners invite interesting people from our community to have dinner with us. People who live in the house also have the chance to suggest...

Reflections on Lynsey Addario

A few weeks ago, Schreyer for Women took a “field trip” to see Lynsey Addario speak, in lieu of our usual weekly meeting. I meant to blog about this the week it happened, but my thoughts got away from me. Lynsey was awesome – no other word for it – and although I’m...

It’s getting to that point in the trip where people are starting to talk about the h word: home. While I still have four more weeks on this amazing continent, I’ve started to come to terms with the fact that my global health fieldwork in Tanzania will be ending next...

First Impressions of Mkonze

While I grew to love my time in Dar es Salaam, I am very welcome of this change of pace and place in Dodoma. I’m an intuitive lover of nature; so being out of the big city and in a slightly cooler climate has been fantastic. I love the lack of touristy areas and the...
