Stranger in a Strange Land is a compilation of critical thoughts and half-baked musings. My experiences in Tanzania form the basis of these thoughts. The title derives from the science fiction novel by Robert A. Heinlein. Heinlein examines constructs of language, religion, and culture. These are topics I find myself challenged by on a daily basis.
I’m an American student studying Nonprofit Management at Indiana University. I also study Swahili and I’m a nerd about international development, beer, and all things literary. I dedicated three years of my life as a Division 1 coxswain for Indiana Women’s Rowing. I’m infatuated by the life around me. I’ve devoted my life to traveling, experiencing cultures, and trying to leave this world a little better in my wake.
