Studying abroad has honestly been one of the best experiences I’ve had while pursing my undergraduate degree. The unconditional support and love I received…while applying, in Ghana, and when I came back to the States was enormous. This experience has given me the confidence to pursue my dreams and I now have a better understanding that whatever I want, I can have and [now I’m motivated to continue helping] other communities, especially underserved communities. This experience will always remain with me and will continue to motivate me in all aspects of my life. The people I met and studied abroad with, immersing myself into the culture, helping the community, AND playing the drums in Ghana was amazing. This experience couldn’t have been any better!!
