Hey everyone! I'm looking to raise funds to take a study abroad trip to Ghana, Africa in the summer of 2017 to benefit my degree, gain an international perspective, and to learn about the history, culture, music, and dance of this great African country. During this trip, my group will be traveling all over the country of Ghana, staying with families and immersing ourselves in the culture of Ghana while learning the very culturally important drumming and dancing. This trip would be a once in a lifetime chance for me to see the world through a different perspective, to make long lasting bonds with people I meet along the way, and to give me an educational, academic experience I will never forget along with having one of the most culturally stimulating experiences. I hope that you can take the time out of your day to read this and to help get me to Ghana. Every little bit helps in my journey to getting there. Thank you so much!
