Here goes nothing...

Hello! This is officially my first time blogging...ever. Though, I must admit that I do frequent the occasional celebrity gossip blog, a guilty pleasure when I'm either procrastinating or passing time. :-)

As stated in the "About Me" section, my name is Meredith and I'm a first year graduate student in Virginia Commonwealth University's occupational therapy program. Along with 4 other OT grad students and 1 of our professors, I will be traveling to Ghana this summer where we will be working with children at various orphanages and schools with Sovereign Global Mission. I have always had a love and passion for travel and have had the opportunity to travel abroad a few times in the past and loved every minute, always wanting to return as soon the plane touched down back in the states! I am very excited and grateful for this experience and can't wait for the semester to begin so we can get this show on the road!

This blog will chronicle my experiences during the next 5 months preparing for our trip, our time in country, and my reflections upon returning from Ghana. And so, here we go!

  1. Dear Meredith,
    I am really curious if you could give me some information about working in Ghana as an occupational therapist. I am an occupational therapist from Holland and I would love to work in Ghana.
    Thanks in advance!
