Friday, June 16th 2017, Washington Dulles international airport. It is 7 pm local time and we are landing after 8 hours in the air. I am happy, but tired and stressed up.
Do you want to know why? The reason is pretty simple. I never been out of my country, and above all never went to a major city in my own country. So the shock was HUGE!!! I never thought I’d take a plane in my whole life, but it’s done today.
The story started 3 months again when I received the confirmation email from the US embassy Yaounde telling me that I have been selected to participate to the 2017 Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders. UNBELIEVABLE !!!!
