Cassie, I too am starting to feel nostalgic for our Great Lakes Reporting Fellowship. It was so awesome to meet both Rwanda and Uganda fellows and share this experience with you all.
Team Uganda, you are all amazing and I have learned so much from each one of you! By tagging along, it was if I became a journalist for a day helping to spread awareness of some of the economic and rural development issues in Uganda through your various interviews in and around Kampala.
Uganda is a beautiful place, and I will greatly miss the people in the local communities who have shared their stories with us these past few days. IWMF will be back next year with new fellows but for now, shout out to the 2015 Uganda fellows!
