Opportunities come at times unexpectedly. Always seeking innovation, new ideas and outside the box stimulus, I jumped at this one.
From November 2 to December 15 I will be in Uganda, Africa. Helping out at the Mengo Hospital.
As I call myself a New Media Journalist I plan to blog a story a day. Not necessarily of what is, but what could be in the eyes of the Uganda people.
CBC recently produced documentaries looking at the other side of Africa. Away from the devastation and towards the hope for the future. My thinking is I document the wishes of the people. So that the Universe can listen.
I have my own wish. This one is for the world. I wish for peace and the end to war and suffering.
In the coming months, I look forward to researching more about the people of Uganda in preparation for documenting their stories and their wishes.
Today I think to myself: Is there enough foreign aid? Are there opportunities for the young people? Are medical teams available and doing all that they can? What economic opportunities lay ahead that the people of Uganda can export globally?
Consider this blog a shout out for your ideas. What else can I do as a New Media Journalist for six weeks at the Mengo Hospital in Uganda, Africa? I look forward to hearing from you.
