A sanguine overview of my bridge year in Senegal. For a slightly more honest and raw account, look back at my previous blogs.
Senegal - 2016
Brooke is passionate about planet earth and everything on it. She is involved in building vegetable and herb gardens in local public schools, has played competitive soccer for 10 years, and was the editor-in-chief of her high school's newspaper. Brooke enjoys backpacking, playing with her pup, and laughing until she cries. Her goals for the year are to offer as much as she receives and to make "yes" the most common word in her vocabulary. One of Brooke's favorite quotes is from The Office's Michael Scott: "Everyone said to Vincent Van Gogh, 'You can't be a great painter, you only have one ear.' And you know what he said? 'I can't hear you.'"
