Branson D Tomlinson, Summer 2019 Participant
Gaining a perspective on African life and culture. In the USA, we have little knowledge of what goes on in Africa or what Africans live like. They are an amazing, proud, intelligent people that I gained so much from. I wish everyone had an opportunity to experience some of what I was able to feel there.

Don't put off studying abroad or ignore it because you think the cost is too high. The experiences and scholarships far outweigh the costs and doubts you have about doing it.

The visits to the townships were one of my favorite parts of this study abroad experience. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a pleasing thing to see, but it opened my eyes so much to what is really going on. A picture cannot capture what we saw that day. Two things that I will truly never forget are those little kids that were in a 10x10ft room singing songs and learning and the joy on their faces when we handed them donations of school supplies. These townships are still such a big part of what South Africa is as a country and what they stand for. I loved how it seemed as if everyone supported them. Like when we went to the market on the weekend in Port Elizabeth and there were so many sellers selling paintings and collages and wood artwork of the townships or representing the townships. It made me feel like it was respected by other people of the country and that was a big takeaway for me as I don’t think the US always has this view on the poor. I feel that this will influence my future interactions with diverse groups of people in a positive way.
