The reason I haven't been updating about my adventure in Guyana is I haven't been on my adventure in Guyana. Unfortunately, a few days after I arrived in Guyana, I began having some unexpected medical issues and had to return home. I had surgery a month ago and have been recovering back home in Cazenovia. While the trip was obviously not what I expected, I did meet some wonderful people who are doing great work in Georgetown. We've discussed the possibility of me helping out from afar and we'll see what we can do. I hope to be able to work with them in the future, depending on how the recovery process goes.
All of the money fundraised for my trip has been donated to the WorldTeach organization so they can continue their mission. Thank you again to all who donated!
In the meantime, I've begun working with Music Ascension again. We are continuing the mission of bring music education to underserved and special needs students in the New Jersey area. I've also taken the last few weeks to visit friends in NYC and DC. I even had a chance to tour the White House Gardens, which was a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to this new adventure, although it wasn't the adventure I planned on.
