  7. Tell us one story/memory that stands out for you while working at Wilderness – Aaah, this is a fun one during a football match with the Magashi staff. I was playing and everyone was talking to me in Kinyarwanda. I couldn’t understand what were they saying but I kept telling myself I need to do better and learn the language quickly. All ended well at the end of the game, I learned to say murokoze cyane (thank you very much) and it felt so good. But I don’t know why I was thinking I could learn a language and run at the same time.

Thank you for sharing your story with us Jaffary!
