Semester Abroad (SA): IFSA Program in Cuba
Ask me about...
A unique aspect about my experience that I think other students should ask me about is learning how to navigate a non-English speaking environment for months, and adapting to an academic setting that functions in Spanish at all times.
My Experience Abroad:
My time abroad in Cuba was perfect for my concentration in the African diaspora for my Africana Studies major. I was able to take many classes that are related to my majors; such as Caribbean Literature and Sociology of Culture.
Amazing host mom who shared many of her values and part of her identity with me, while also encouraging me to be persistent and resilient in life.
The music and the food!
Having the opportunity to be in an environment where people prioritize work-life balance
I did an independent study which I will hopefully use for my senior CAPSTONE Paper
