Like many of my peers at the George Washington University, I was dedicated to the idea of studying abroad during my junior year.

Looking back, it’s hard to pinpoint the catalyst, but when it came time to apply there was only one place I wanted to go: Senegal.

My trip to Durban started on a shuttle bus from Arusha to Nairobi...wrong direction, I know, but lower emissions than the flight AND you take a 0 off the price tag!
