Education-Focused Sabbatical in Kenya
What does a sabbatical look like for someone in the Educational Leadership ranks? My sabbatical consisted primarily of two projects outside of - and physically far away from - the UBC BMLSc Program. I was invited to work with the Aga Khan University (AKU) Hospital in Nairobi and with Kabarak University in rural Kenya. The two projects were unrelated and if you’re wondering how both of these amazing projects in Kenya landed “on my doorstep”, all I can say is I was incredibly lucky! These opportunities were exactly the kind of work I was hoping for so perhaps Seneca’s quote: “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity” had some wonderful merit for me.
