Hello beautiful souls!
As many of you may know, I’ve spent the past couple months preparing for a big adventure teaching English in Tanzania more specifically on an island off the coast called Mafia Island.
In July of 2012, I received the incredible news I had been accepted in World Teach for the 2013 Tanzania Semester! Since then, I have diligently been fundraising and making proper arrangements to move my life out of the United States for about three months.
In September 2012, I hosted an “Ashley Strong Photography” art show fundraiser at Trilogy Yoga in Long Beach. Here, I used my framed travel and nature photography along with raffle prizes to raise funds for my program fee. Seeing as this is all volunteer work, the monetary commitment is necessary.
Thank you to each and every one of my supporters, I successfully raised a little over half of my program fee! This whole experience, from getting into the program to fundraising to having a going away party has been such an incredibly humbling experience.
It was one of the biggest reminders of how truly blessed I am to be surrounded by such supportive, genuine, creative and loving beings everyday! I cannot thank you enough for all you’ve done to make this dream a reality! For the next three months, my photography will be going from Southern California to New York, New Jersey, Washington DC, Amsterdam, Dar es Salaam and Mafia Island, Tanzania.
With this, I will have very limited access to Internet so your patience with responding to request for Ashley Strong Photography services is greatly appreciated. I am still booking 2013 weddings, engagement and portrait sessions after April 2013.If you are interested in booking a 2013 date, please just contact me with your information and either myself or Bailey will be in touch! While there, I set up this blog "Jambo from Tanzania" to keep everyone updated of my adventures and photos taken along this journey. Please check in periodically and feel free to share with others! Thanks again so much for the abundance of love and support! I look forward to sharing my new adventures with each of you! I’ll be sending lots of love and positive light from Tanzania!
Much Love! :)

Living & Teaching abroad in Mafia Island, Tanzania
In June of 2012.... a dream came true.
I was accepted into a WorldTeach program to teach English in Tanzania on Mafia Island. In late December of 2012, I embarked on a 3 month journey to the motherland! Enjoy this blog as it was designed to share my photographs and adventures while living and teaching
on Mafia Island, Tanzania.
