“Everyone should experience global health work; it’s so different in person than in a classroom. I am more conscious of my identity and privilege, and I am more passionate about making a difference and getting involved in grassroots organizations.”

Ciara Michel

Not many UW students can say they’ve led a beekeeping operation in Uganda. In fact, there may be only three, and Ciara Michel BSx’19 is one of them. A senior majoring in microbiology, Ciara and two of her peer undergraduates spent four weeks in Uganda in the summer of 2017 managing The Apiary Project, which benefits communities affected by civil war in Uganda. So far, the project has reached 169 households. The residents use the beekeeping income for food, medical bills, school fees, livestock and apiary expansion. Ciara’s trip abroad expanded her horizons and made her want to learn more. After returning from Uganda, she started working toward a certificate in African studies. She plans on returning to Uganda to work, see friends she’s made, and explore more of the country.
