So here’s the story.
Africa is experiencing brain-drain. This means that the science enthusiasts and other educated people are jumping ship for better prospects overseas. In some areas brain-drain is so bad that newly minted graduates are immediately promoted to course lecturer; a desperate move to simply keep the science alive. Through the not-for-profit group TReND, myself and other educationally privileged nerds are welcomed into African universities to share our skills.
That’s me, an educationally privileged nerd.
And I’m off to Ethiopia to share some knowledge, and gain some wisdom.
… and I have absolutely no clue what I’m getting myself into.
