"Ogumeho Gye" - Goodbye

People travel for different reasons: many "to find themselves," which means figuring out who they are and what they want to do with their lives. For example, my experiences thus far have further inspired me to pursue medicine and public health research. I knew I wanted to be a medical doctor and researcher, but prior to traveling, I was unsure which field would be my area of focus.

I am so sad our journey together has ended this quickly. I truly hope my life and the Ugandan experiences I’ve shared have inspired you to travel and live abroad. There are many opportunities out there that can support you to do so and have fun while learning.

Always remember to have big ideas and aspirations. Even if you don’t achieve them all, you will certainly accomplish many and your life will better for it.

I’ll leave you with this quote by St. Augustine: “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

So go ahead, travel and read the many pages in the book of the world.
