The three weeks I have spent in South Africa will forever remain the best memories of my life. I have met friends I plan to keep in touch with forever, and my eyes have seen some of God’s most beautiful creations. Although I hate to leave it all behind, I’m looking forward to coming back and reliving those movements.
After my wonderful experience, I cannot help but be an advocate of study abroad programs. I am not going to lie; initially I had reservations about my journey. I did not think that I would find studying abroad as enjoyable as everyone else made it out to be. However, now that I have gone through it, I understand why there is so much buzz and excitement about abroad programs. South Africa 2011 is hands down one of the best experiences of my life!!
Thank you to SMU, Mr. and Mrs. Hunt and the CCPA department for the financial support. Thank you also to my support group of family, friends, faculty and administrators who encouraged me to partake in this journey.
