Political Science with Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies concentration
"Friends, if you really want to study abroad, go on this trip. Its completely unlike any other program you can go on and it completely encompases the idea "study abroad." Don't like camping? Nature? Bugs? Go anyway! If I survived, you will survive. Deciding to do this program was one of the best decisions I ever made.
Seriously, though. Write down everything. Be prepared to see and do the unexpected. Climb Dune 7 (to the top). Eat and drink (in no particular order) Appletiser, Simba Chips, Liqui-Fruit, Cadbury Dairy Milk Biscuit, Magnum Bars. TALK about those sensitive subjects like gender and race-if you don't, you lose out a on a significant lesson and a chance to grow. Don't just apply what you learn to school work, but apply it to your everyday life, INCLUDING the experiences you have while you are still in Africa. Realize that no matter how hard you try, there is no way to fully explain or describe this magical experience to anyone else except by saying "amazing"-and that's okay! Most importantly, open your eyes, ears, and heart."
