My name is Madison Brauer and I will be going into my fourth year of foods and nutrition at the university of Prince Edward Island this fall. I am from a very small town in northern Alberta where my parents and two younger siblings reside on our acreage. This summer I am working towards becoming a dietitian by doing my population and public health internship placement in the Naari region of Kenya.
The thing that has stood out to me the most about Kenya so far is the beauty of the landscape. The various types of trees, shrubs and flowers are unlike anything I have ever seen before. Because of the heavy rains the region has received in the past two months, everything is extremely lush and green. The dirt here is red, it may even be more copper in color than the famous PEI dirt! The contrast between the bright green plant growth and the red dirt is exquisite and is making for some wonderful photographs. Each day I wake up and look outside I admire the beauty of our yard! I am looking forward to seeing and capturing images of more Kenyan landscapes.
