Are you going to study abroad some where in Africa? This might be a good video to show your friends and family when you break the news. Over and over again students tell their families that they’re headed for a semester in South Africa or another African country and the questions start regarding safety, animals, or modernity. However, each student who travels to an African country has the chance to stop the single story being told of the African continent and her people.
Remember, if you are studying abroad, you are going there to learn and not save anyone. Be open-minded. Be a student.
