This blog post is short and sweet.
During my time in Cape Coast, I gained some experiences that I was not anticipating during my plane ride over.
Since my roommate had already been in Cape Coast for a few weeks, I was instantly immersed into the social scene among the volunteers and most importantly, the Ghanaian culture.
During my flight from Brussels to Accra, I was stunned by the theatrical passengers and high energy atmosphere. Since flights to Africa were located in a separate branch of the airport, I felt as if only the most ecstatic and passionate people filtered into Terminal T.
The Ballet World is notorious for being harsh, tunnel-visioned, and coming off as pretentious. Through documentaries, editorials, and story-telling, the Ballet World seems to primarily focus on one ideology: survival of the fittest.
Reminder to all:
Take an easy on yourself. I know that we are all insecure and harsh on ourselves, but learn to love yourself to be able to love others... I know it sounds cheesy, but it is incredibly true. Really, I mean it!
