MITS photojournalism intern, Kinley Cash, has only been in Kamulu a week. Born to missionary parents in Nairobi, Kenya & raised in Uganda, Kinley may be new to MITS, but she’s certainly not new to East Africa.
What led you to MITS?
K: "I've known the Conways (a local missionary family) my whole life so I've grown up hearing about MITS. When I was trying to decide what my next step needed to be MITS was always on the radar."
What will you be doing during your time here?
K: "I am here as the photojournalism intern. So while I'm here I'll be taking pictures of anything and everything, trying to record the students daily life at MITS."
"I will also be tutoring some of the kids in English when needed."
What is your favorite memory from your first week here?
K: "My favorite memory so far is getting to walk bases in Eastliegh. The base that we went to was super friendly and receptive and I got to finally see a part of the world that I have been hearing about for my whole life."
You’ll be seeing many of Kinley’s wonderful photos on Facebook & Instagram. Karibou Kinley!
