I’m headed to Cape Town, South Africa, for the entire Fall semester. I’m spending the semester interning for Hoops4Hope, an organization that uses basketball as a youth development tool, trying to teach disadvantaged youth in South Africa how to improve their lives, using sport as the catalyst to create leaders and upstanding citizens. I’m working marketing and PR for when a handful of NBA players come work a clinic, and I get to work directly with them while they’re in Cape Town.

This blog is a way to keep family and friends involved and informed on my trip, and a way for me to let out stories and frustrations and joys with the world without overwhelming or, more likely, boring my close friends. If you see something that makes you cringe, laugh, think, or anything else – please let me know. This blog is here for you as much as it is for me.

My internet situation is pretty stable here, so expect a post every few days or, if something interesting happens, more often. Once I start taking pictures I’ll be including them in posts, and might even just have only picture posts. I tend to write more than is necessary, but I hope you enjoy my posts and they keep you as up to date as you want to be on my experience.

Peace, love, and good luck.

– Jack
