Storyboard Text

  • We are going to Africa!
  • Hey, Sean! I have something exciting to tell you.
  • What?
  • Malawi. A country located in southeastern Africa.
  • Where are we going to in Africa?
  • We are going for a month.
  • Yes!
  • Does grandpa live in Malawi?
  • How long do we have to stay there?
  • Sean, we are about to land in Africa!
  • Ok, mom.
  • It’s going to be an adjustment, but I can guarantee you that you’ll have a lot of fun.
  • I don't think so.
  • Holy crap. It's so hot in Africa.
  • It is not as bad as you think. Always stay positive.
  • Africa is so dirty. How could anyone live here?
  • Yes!
  • Uzizwa unjani umzukulu wami?
  • Is that grandpa over there?
  • At least were staying in a decently sized house.
  • Zulu.
  • Oh.
  • What language is grandpa speaking?
  • No, son! Malawi is one of the poorest countries in Africa.
  • Is there an internet connection or TV?
  • There is absolutely nothing to do here.
  • Sean, go outside and enjoy the beauty of mother nature.
  • Fine.
  • In Malawi, kids don't go to school. There is not enough funding.
  • Wow! They are so lucky.
  • Why are kids leisurely playing outside during a school day?
  • Sean sees kids playing outside in the mud.
  • Sean thinks this is nasty but knows that they don’t know any better. After all, they don't have a proper education.
  • Sean starts to feel sorry for the kids.
  • Life in the United States is so much better!
  • For the first time, Sean feels that he is lucky.
  • Yup. It's very sad.
  • Mom, you were right, Malawi is an extremely poor country.
  • Sean, make sure you pack up your suitcase. We are leaving early in the morning tomorrow.
  • 2 Weeks Later...
  • Ok, mom.
  • As Sean was packing up his suitcase, he felt sad for the kids in Malawi. So, he decided to do something about it. He ends up establishing the first school in Malawi.
  • 5 Years Later ...
  • Always believe and appreciate what you have!
