dc.description.abstractThis travel memoir is based on a journal kept by Rebecca Corey over her ten-week stay in Tanzania, Africa in the summer of 2007. The author describes her experiences as a primary school teacher at a center for orphaned and impoverished youth, her travel around the country, her reflections on tourism, the volunteer experience, and African culture, and her research on Tanzanian proverbs. This multi-media creative non-fiction piece includes photographs and narrative writing. In her work, Corey addresses the private aspects of travel and self-discovery as well as the broader realms of tourism and global service initiatives in a developing country. She places her experiences in the wider context of travel and service in Africa, ruminating on the joy, fear, and discovery that characterized her stay in Tanzania. She illustrates the sense of fulfillment created by civic engagement and humanitarian work while also discussing the challenges and frustrations those activities often entail. Corey's work is informed by her concurrent research on the existing body of creative non-fiction and travel writing, as well as her research on the proverbs of Tanzania conducted in June and July of 2007.
