lost coast loves you the best

The memories continue to buzz through my mind even as I continue to circuit the country that is ‘merica as mike would say. The joy, the love, the patience, kindness….all overflowing from the counselors, to the JC’s, to the cooks, to Moses the sanitizer. Lost coast camp is an exceptional camp by its own accord. It targets kids from all socio-economic backgrounds bringing different people from all walks of earth together for a week and fostering life-changing experiences that I personally will carry with me for the rest of my life.
Thank you Josie Brown for seeing the best in me and picking me all the way from Kenya to help shape lives. Thank you for changing my perspective of almost everything. Thank you for seeing me for who I am and encouraging me to just be that. Thank you for picking the most wonderful and diverse people to co-counsel with and make memories with. Thank you for showing me that there is so much more to everything in the world and that being open minded to life is a much better way to experience it in the end…
So to all of you who made this possible, to all the kids who taught me that a smile a day always goes a mile and my beautiful and handsome co.’s who just made every moment feel as amazing as the last…you have a special place in my heart and in my life…
To the people of Petrolia for not singling me out and making me feel like the outsider but accepting me even when my accent was too heavy to understand what I was saying (yes guys.. we have an accent!!! Hallelujah!!!). Thank you for letting me being open with myself and express my “African” self in all ways I could. You guys made living in Petrolia a much better experience than anywhere else I have visited. To everyone else who was part of my journey, to every person that went out of their way to host me, to take me places, to laugh with me and cry with me when I was homesick…my love extends to you all…
Words can’t express my experience so here are a few pics of my summer at LOST COAST CAMP!! Enjoy 🙂
