Seven weeks from today my plane will touch down in Entebbe, Uganda and I’ll make the drive up north to Atiak – the town I’ll be living and working in for a time period that has yet to be determined. I’ll be working with a small organization called Earth Birth (more on that later). While I am unbelievably excited to move forward with the start of my career, this also means I have the next seven weeks to complete the last leg of my graduate degree at the LSE – my dissertation. In an attempt to organize my currently muddled thoughts regarding the assignment, I’ve created this blog. I’ll be posting research findings, articles, excerpts from my dissertation drafts, and general thoughts. When I move to Atiak I’ll begin using this blog as a way to share my experiences at Earth Birth. I’m envisioning a smooth transition as my dissertation topic is closely related to the work I’ll be doing at Earth Birth’s clinic. More on Earth Birth and my dissertation topic will have to be discussed in my next post, as it is approaching 5am here in London!
