My name is Gabby McDaniel. I graduated from the University of the Pacific in December with a Bachelor’s degree in Geology. I am taking the free time I have, before starting graduate school in the fall, to travel to Tanzania and volunteer at two different community centers. I will spend my first two months volunteering at the United African Alliance Community Center in Arusha and then I will spend another two months volunteering at the Creative Solutions Community Center in Zanzibar. I am excited to learn Swahili, teach English and computer classes and just immerse myself in the Tanzanian culture! I will try to update this blog as much as possible while I am there to keep all my family and friends informed about what I am doing and learning.
