Welcome to my Blog!
My relationship with Dakar, Senegal is now just in the making. The first week of August I Will be moving there for two years with my younger brother Simon and my Mom who is going to be teaching at an International School there. I’m only in middle school so I will be attending school there also.
I will be putting up posts of my experiences leading up to my trip. Wish me luck!
