“I can’t breathe”. What the fuck, world? How do we keep letting this same shit happen over, and over, and over again. How is it that people don’t think racism exists? How is it that nothing seems to be changing? I don’t understand. I don’t understand how hate can be so powerful and harmony can..

It seems important that I use this platform I’ve been given to be honest. And the truth is that I almost didn’t do this speech. The truth is that I have spent the last few weeks feeling like I have been asking too many questions and dealing with too many triggers in the past two..

In recent years, I have felt a little bit conflicted about how I feel with regards to sports. I struggle to be okay with Evander Kane making a salary of 4.5 million dollars for playing hockey  in a city where less than five minutes from the arena, homeless people are dying because the city turns..

Every Monday morning, the World Vision staff gathers for an hour of devotions. Sometimes, I have a hard time with preaching here in Zimbabwe; I tend to have progressive beliefs even in Canada, which certainly means that in the context of Zimbabwe, I might not agree with everything.

Hello friends, I am over half done my time in Zimbabwe at this point, and have been asked by a few people how they can be praying for me. I do have a section on my blog called “prayer requests”, but this is a little bit more specific. -A coworker of mine in Nkayi has..

“These girls experience rape that people here can’t even imagine.” When I was in Toronto preparing to come to Zimbabwe, I was walking to Subway for dinner and somebody said this to me. They were standing outside and looking to raise money for an NGO that deals largely with issues that young women face in..

I’ve been asked a handful of times what the hardest part about being here has been, and I’ve given a few different answers. -There is a difference in the way time is valued, and as such, I’ve ended up sitting and waiting around for two hours. -I miss my family. -I don’t like using blair..
