Me: “Actually, I am studying abroad in the spring.”
Them: “Really? Where are you going?”
Me: “Rwanda. In East Africa.”
Them: “Wow. Have you seen the movie Hotel Rwanda?”
Me: “Yes it is powerful and I know my experience will be powerful too. I am going to keep a blog if you are interested in reading about my experience.”
Them: “That is wonderful. Let me know if you decide to blog.”

I said I would blog…so here I am.

My name is Ben Weinberg and I am a sophomore studying Law, Politics, and Society and Religion at Drake University. I am writing this to communicate, in the best way I can, my experience in Rwanda to my family and friends back in the States. I am studying through SIT Study Abroad in a program entitled Rwanda: Post-Genocide Restoration and Peacebuilding. Please enjoy and thank you for all of your support as I embark on this amazing journey.

    I am so proud of you – and your pursuit of ‘DISCOVER’ for 2015! I am quite sure that you will be making a difference one layer at a time (as stated in your recent blog), and great things will continue to emerge for Benjamin Weinberg!
    Stay safe and best wishes to you during the next few months!
