The other main focus the last week or so is that this Friday is Mandela Day. This is a South African holiday which encourages everyone to donate 67 minutes of their day to any sort of charity or helping their community. Each minute represents each year that Nelson Mandela fought for equality and change. We had spent some time doing door to door sales to companies in Stellenbosch, mostly car companies with large carbon footprints, doing rocket pitches while holding up our first model plant I had put together. While this is still in the works for future follow ups and donations, we do have one company that is volunteering their time to plant a few trees on our Kayamandi site. However, as of this morning it is down pouring the next two days and it will be rescheduled for a future time.

It has been really great to be able to grow with the company dynamic here. Each meeting is an uplifting debrief or reflection session which includes positives, negatives, accomplishments, acknowledgements, ice breakers, and lessons from the boss. Everyone works with each other here and engages together as we are all working on separate parts that are intertwined together. It has also been very interesting to view the way this company handles the in and out of the different interns. As it is a constant changing dynamic of international people the office changes every week. There has been recently in placed a sort of transitional program that will help the future of continuity between the different roles and projects.

Also as an exciting note, I went shark cage diving this week! Very exciting and very cold in the middle of winter.
