After summer school this week, we all filed into a building with an enormous map of Sierra Leone drawn on the concrete with colored chalk. This was the moment I had waited form all of PST. Our site announcements!!! One by one we were called to the map to stand in the location of our village. I am heading to MOYAMBA!!!! Which is in southwest SL, two hours from Bo, two hours from Freetown and two hours from the coast. Approximately. I will be teaching at an all girls boarding school. YAYAY girl power! I have been told it is one of the oldest girl’s boarding school in the country. I will be heading to Moyamba with my friend Meghan, who has basically been my roommate since DC. We were roommates in Freetown and live in the same neighborhood in Bo. She will be living and teaching at a different girls school. Moyamba is about 7000 people and surrounded by the jungle. Heading there this weekend so I will have more to tell you later. Living in Moyamba for two years and swearing in is a month away!! YAYAY!!!
