BY JENIECE TORANZO, MESA, USA - Well I am not exactly a fan of writing, but I will learn to love it. When I first met Jabbes, to be honest, I could not understand a word he said. I have had a couple of classes with him, so I've known him for a while now. As I got to know him and talk to him more, it became much easier to understand him. He is a good friend and fun person to talk to. I am grateful that I was able to work on his digital story, MY JOURNEY FROM ZAMBIA TO ARIZONA AND BACK AGAIN. It is a strong story that touches your heart. I love being apart of the Zambia project. We have an awesome team. We get along really well and help each other when in need. It feels like a "film" family to me. I love it.
I am excited to be able to over seas and into another country. What an honor and privilege. I hope to gain knowledge, learn new experiences, and gain new friendships with the people in Zambia. I can't wait to meet great people who are down to earth and who have a love for their country. I hope to learn from them and appreciate the life I have here in the States. To be honest, I'm not too afraid, maybe just a little, if something were to happen to me. The thought of being able to participate in helping a country grow and have their voices be heard by others around the world, is far more exciting than I can imagine. It's exciting to be a part of a team that will help create a path for a country that is not well known by others. It's a chance to help the country find its own voice and become successful, a journey well worth taking.
