Hello from the bush!
My name is Casey and I’m a senior studying environmental science and geography. I’m so excited to be in a new country and to learn about the unique land and habitats that sustain such amazing people and wildlife. I can’t wait to further explore this beautiful country and eat plenty more new foods! (I hope they have sorghum and gemsbok back at H.E.B...) I’m most looking forward to learning about how the people of Botswana live and thrive off of the land, and to see first-hand how the future of these communities will continue to develop. Also my birthday! In Africa! How cool!!!
I’d like to thank Mom and Dad as well as Thoralf Meyer and the rest of the Geography department at UT who have allowed me to experience this truly once in a life time opportunity. Thank you so much to everyone who has wished me well on this journey. I can’t wait to come back with stories to tell!
