  1. hi Jess, it is so nice to hear from you. I miss you lots, I am sooooooo proud of you and at the same time I am jealous (in a nice way) after reading your itinerary for the next few months. I just want to wish you all the best in your endeavors and I have a pair of Blue Jays tickets for the final game of the year, and hopefully you’re back home and will accompany me to that game. Take care and please email me if you get the opportunity.
    love you very much
    uncle Alex,

  2. Very exciting Jess. Sounds like your career has started off with a bang. Congratulations! All the best. Stay safe.

  3. Congratulations Jessica! I’m excited to be part of this journey with you, your friends and family! Looking forward to seeing and hearing more from you. xx

  4. Awesome article Jess. You are so right. During my travels to under developed countries, people are happier. We ” white, rich ” folks spend too much time “getting more stuff and trying to take care of it.” Not the best use of our time and talents. You are an amazing woman ! I am blessed by knowing you. Keeping you in my prayers- for safety in your travels, coping with ” African time”, and not missing your mom too much. Sending love and hugs your way. Ellen

  5. I thought of you today as I sat in borrowed gowns on the stage looking out over the graduating students at Carleton University. I felt proud to have played a small role in their education. I am very proud to have played a small role in yours. You have the gift of looking deeper and seeing more. And I love the way that you turn those roads inward to explore your own thoughts and being. You are a traveler. Not a tourist.
    I would love you to give your stories a name and a face. Introduce me to the people you meet.
    And do me a little favour. Take a little red earth and crumble it between your fingers. It will always be your welcome mat when you fly back in to Africa.
    And you know you will. Africa is a lifelong commitment.

  8. Jessica,
