About my Journey

I’m currently a medical student, but decided to take a risk and move to Cape Town, South Africa for a year long internship. I’ll be working for the organization Grassroot Soccer, which is a non-profit organization that uses the power of soccer to educate communities about HIV. Coincidentally my husband was also offered a full time job in Cape Town, so we’ll be partaking in this journey together.

I don’t take myself too seriously and love to laugh. Soccer, wine, seafood and travel make me happy. I’m lucky to have great friends and family who have taught me a lot over the years. I’m not one to talk a lot about myself, I’m more of a listener but this will be my outlet to express my deep dark thoughts because sometimes I do have some.

I’m optimistic and ready to share this journey with anyone who will listen.

  1. April! Have such an amazing time. This sounds like it will be an eye-opening and enriching experience and I can’t wait to see and read what you’ll be doing in Cape Town! Be safe and much love to you ❤

  2. I came across your blog through the Nest. I’m also a Philly native but living in not nearly half as exotic a location as you are. I hope your year proves to be an incredible experience and I look forward to reading about your adventures since South Africa is a country I would love to visit one day.

  3. Hi April, It was great to meet you yesterday, albeit briefly! I looked up Grassroots Soccer and came upon your blog. I hope your time in Cape Town is wonderful, and if you ever want to stop by Observatory and tell us more about Grassroots Soccer, you are welcome here!
