Fikir from Ethiopia <3

My computer is full and acting very weird, but I think it because its full to capacity! Not allowing me to function properly when uploading and using safari! Until then, enjoy this little cutie(:

First Home visit!

Hey guys! Long time no see! We have sooooo much to ketch up on, but I’ve been at the academy for almost a week (6 days & Ethiopia a total of 26 days) and I had my very first home visit today! 

Debre Zeyit is TOTALLY different from Addis! Its a lot more chill, and a lot less people! I haven’t gone too far from the guest house & school for exploring, but I haven’t seen any beggars, and guys don’t CONSISTENTLY whistle & hit on you.

Anyways, this morning I had my first home visit!!! And of course it was my favorite…..

BEREKET! Lol I LOVE HER, She is my FAVORITE!!!! (Shhhh). She is the cutest, tiniest little four year old ever!

During the home visit, we talked to her mom and checked in how she is doing. Making sure she has a good appetite, and maintaining a balanced nutritious diet! Unfortunately she had to miss school yesterday because of stomach issues, but we were able to pinpoint the cause which was unclean water. The family ran out of filtered water, but she was all smiles today :)

Also, I was able to bless her with a bunch of clothes as well…and of course everyone’s favorite….BUBBLE GUM. Lol she loved it! and kept going through all the clothes!

Here are few photos Bereket & her beautiful mother!

A special shout out to Juanita, Kalome & Kailaya Montgomery for donating a HUGE portion of clothes. Also Smash Beauty (Ash-lee Jackson) with #AskSeekKnock, for donating the “Psalm 139:14, I Am Not A Mistake” T-shirts. 

P.s I just finished editing a video of my first week at BCI, I should be posting tomorrow if time & wifi permits! :) lol stay tuned.

The Ford School from CamilleJael on Vimeo.

Here is just a mini clip of the Ford School in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia! The children were so cute!

Made It to Ethiopia!

Heyyy Guys! Long time no see! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuut I made to…..

Yes after 14 hours, and over 7k miles! I made it & made it safely! I have actually been here for about a week….And I LOVE IT!!


I got to volunteer at “The Ford School” for only a couple hours, but it was pretty awesome (can you find me in the picture above?)! I was a nervous at first, but the children seem to  really enjoy me & kept asking about my background. It kinda funny that “African American” is a foreign concept for them. After going through a few periods of 5th & 6th graders, we had free time and I got to see most the kids pre-K through 8th grade.

This is Anna, I was sitting on the stairs and she just came up to me and laid her head on my shoulder. Lol my heart melted! I’ll be posting a couple cute videos in a separate post!

Also, I was fortunate enough to tour both the beautiful African Union & The US embassy! The AU was soooo beautiful and BIG!

*I have sooo much more to say, and I’ll be posting later, but Its pretty late (we are 7hrs ahead) and I have church in the morning! *Cues Praise break*

BUT if you want to keep in contact with me, download this app called “Viber”.

This app is available on both iOS (Phones & Macs) and Andriod systems. Its completely free if you have wifi, but you’re able to text and/or call me! Although Im not sure how frequent my wifi availability will be, you can still write me on FB or twitter! I also update my instagram pretty frequently (@NapturalGirl).

Thanks!!! I’ll be posting more shortly, God willing! I love y’all!

Ps I’m still accepting donations at GoFundMe.com/DearEthiopia .

the worst feeling in the world is to know you were used and lied to by someone you trusted
