Part 1. ⚠️ This post is long and full of pictures. I just arrived back in the US and looking back at the pictures and videos from my time spent in Ethiopia, I’m struggling to hold back the tears.. happy tears, sad tears, and thankful tears. Ethiopia you have humbled me. In my 37 years on this planet, I had never been inspired until I met Greg. The work he has done and continues to do has made me realize that it really does take just one person to make a difference. Never in a million years did I think I’d want to do humanitarian work but thanks to this experience, I can’t imagine doing anything else with my free time. I’m so grateful to those who have helped me take advantage of this opportunity whether it was through financial or emotional support; your generosity will not soon be forgotten. Additionally, I am so incredibly thankful for the people of Ethiopia that allowed me into their lives and trusted me with their children; I will never be able to say “thank you” enough. Thanks to this experience, I’m going to try and remember just how lucky I am for the country I live in and for the things I have.. things I take for granted like clean drinking water. So until we meet again Ethiopia, ameseginalew 💚 #visionsglobalempowerment

Here are some cool videos and photos of what we saw along the way to and in the Simien Mountain National Park as well as in Lake Tana, near Bahir Dar. Beautiful views at ~3600 m (~10,800 ft ) high with deep valleys and gorges. I caught some nice clouds rolling in from a thunderstorm along with some views of the road to get there and in the park from a trail we took. Also got some great hippos saying hello from Lake Tana. You can also see some indigenous Gelada baboons goofing around accompanied by my laughs and Greg’s account of some silly baboons not making it followed by a small “fight” by two male leaders of different troops. It was also pretty cold up there and quite literally and figuratively took my breath away due to the beauty and lower oxygen levels being so high up. 😜 Definitely a wonderful experience and something you’ve gotta do and see for yourself. • • • #ethiopia #baboon #hippo #laketana #simienmountains #bahirdar #gondar #trails #wildlifeconservation #mountains #studyabroad #visionsglobalempowerment #sunynewpaltz

As I step into chairing our @pwrsatellite club this year, I take inspiration from people like Greg who founded and directs @visionseducation . I can't wait to visit Nicaragua this November to see the start of our new school! ♥️🚌👩🏽‍🏫 #nicaragua #visionsglobalempowerment #keeplearning #youthempowerment #educationisthekeytochange

You can’t go overseas without taking some time out to explore national parks, hike beautiful trails, climb on buses, and have fun with new friends. Also cannot go to the Cradle of Humankind and NOT see THE Lucy (Australopithecus afarensis ) in person! That would be like committing high treason to every biologist, anthropologist, evolutionary scientist, and paleontologist ever. Also can’t forget to take a picture with cows because I freaking love cows so much. This trip included seeing the cities of Bahir Dar, Addis Ababa, and Gondar. We also climbed the Blue Nile Falls, Mt. Entoto, and went into the Simien Mountains in their national park (baboon photos later ). An interesting blurb about the castle photographed: the Empress Mentewab served as a powerful queen although the people hated her at first as she was a foreigner. After having cured Emperor Bakaffa of malaria, he knew how smart and powerful she was. He made the people accept her and she even had her own castle built that mirrored that of a king’s complete with a sauna, and many other things deemed necessary for a king. There, she led many programs for women to learn how to do things themselves, for themselves and their families, as well as teaching them medicinal things. #womenempowerment • • • #ethiopia #gondar #simienmountains #simienmountainsnationalpark #addisababa #bahirdar #lucy #visions #visionsglobalempowerment #bluenilefalls #mountentoto #cows

I can’t even begin to explain how happy I am to have come on this trip. As someone who believes that education should be accessible to all, I’m so thankful I was able to come to Bahir Dar and really put my beliefs and words to work. There’s also more than just teaching kids about bacteria and vaccines, it was the joy of seeing them intrigued, wanting to learn more, and seeing the mental click or having activities go according to plan showing that they understood. I loved coming here and wish it was longer. Just another reason for me to come back! 💚💛❤️ • • • • #sunynewpaltz #visionsglobalempowerment #visions #bahirdar #ethiopia #teaching #deafcommunity #education #educationwithoutborders #deafstudies #immunology #vaccines #microbiota

Easter this year was a day of celebration with family, and also a day of mourning for the lives lost in Sri Lanka. I hope that we can put our differences aside to share this planet called Mother Earth. ♥️🌎 #srilanka #homeland #earthday #mothernature #bekind #lovealways #peacewithin #livekindly #becompassionate #whereswaldo #visionsglobalempowerment #knowledgeispower #teachingabroad

😊👏🏽😊 Huge thanks to Grainne C. Moloney who donated 9 hearing aids to Willie White, Kerry Deaf Resource Centre, Tralee for their work in Ethiopia 🇪🇹. Willie will be donating these to the KAL Deaf Center in Bahir Dar. Catherine Clark is an audiologist in Rochester & she will re-tune the hearing aids & she will bring them to Ethiopia in August. The hearing aids will be given to local people in Bahir Dar when they get their hearing tested by a local Deaf person Mulugeta Moges & his hearing colleague Mizanu Cheklie. Both were trained up by Catherine & all 3 of them are sign language users too. The Centre there is supported by Visions Global Empowerment & I know its founder Greg Taylor Buie will be delighted too with the donations. Thanks so much Grainne- this will make a huge difference to local people in Ethiopia with a hearing loss 😊👏🏽😊 #KALCenter #VisionsGlobalEmpowerment
