Cannot believe that today was already my last day teaching at Agabf Community School. Overall it was stressful, tiring and overwhelming but with my own initiative it was fun and truly beneficial to my class. Today they sang me a song they made for me, all gave me a hug and fair well and about 15 of them even walked me all the way home (a 45minute walk uphill)! I send the best of luck to all of the students who came through my class and will miss them all so much! #softinsta #ivhq #ivhqzambia #volunteerabroad #wanderlust #livefortravel #travelforlife #zambia #livingstone #howdoteachersdothis?! #fairwell #gopro #goproselfie #posey#samytgeography
