Introducing the Intern team for Cohort 2!

There are twelve of us heading off to various countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.  Here are a few fun facts about the team that you may find interesting:
Girls Night Out (No Boys Allowed)
  1. Most of us are in our late twenties (though we have a few youngins)
  2. Most of us don't have a degree in development. Our educational backgrounds range from bio-chemistry to international politics to social work to communications to history (my own personal addition to the mix)
  3. There are twelve of us going to four different countries: Uganda, South Africa, Zambia and Tanzania
  4. Three of us have travelled to Africa before. Others have done travelling elsewhere and spent time in South America, Saudi Arabia, Honduras and India
  5. We sat around one day and asked everyone to describe who they were in high school to see who would have hung out in the same group
  6. The two guys in our group made a song about all of us.  Check it out on youtube!
It's a pretty great group of people and it has been a ton of fun getting to know everyone.  You'll be hearing a lot more about the Tanzania group in particular but I'll post up the people's blogs as soon as I have links to them all.
