The purpose of this project was to depict the author's experience and feelings about living in Zambia, with visits to Zimbabwe, where she lived and worked for nine months as a volunteer. The project was written in narrative form and portrays the author's feelings about living in another culture, being a white minority amongst an oppressed population, and how her experience moved her to continue to advocate for Africans as a social worker. Literature was reviewed about the HIV/AIDS epidemic, poverty in Africa, and social services in Africa to increase awareness behind the issues the author experienced while in Africa. The narrative was composed after reviewing six narratives and literature on writing an effective narrative. Social work implications and the impact of writing the narrative were also discussed.
