The Burch Fellowship 2015: Hello World!

Sharing is caring!

The deadline to apply for the Fellowship I’m gunning for is quickly approaching. I’ve been working on the application for months, shaping it as my plans make themselves clearer; Guatemala, Ecuador, and Peru are the final stops. From May to December 2015, I’ll be working with cacao farmers and chocolate makers in these areas, learning how to use their unique chocolate-making equipment, crafting bonbons, scaling cacao trees, and hacking cacao pods open with a machete! This blog will keep track of my adventures, as well as give advice whenever I have any… I expect to learn a lot about myself and others and the world in the next year or so.
