Welcome! I'm Katy, an Anthropology and Pre-Med major at the University of Notre Dame. During the summer of 2013, I was offered a chance to conduct research on childhood disability in the Northern Province of Sierra Leone, sponsored by the Glynn Family Honors Program at Notre Dame. The two months I spent there were fascinating, challenging, and immensely rewarding, and I invite you to join me as I continue my reflections on this site! Most of the pages are listed above, but I have also included several journal entries found throughout the site that link to field notes, personal journal entries, and post-immersion analyses regarding my time in Sierra Leone. Have a look around!
