Ghana!

16 Apr

The title says it all!

That’s right I am a YES Abroad finalist and I couldn’t be happier! I will spending NINE MONTHS in Ghana, (Not exactly sure what city yet), and it is going to be absolutely insane! That makes me an ambassador, (doesn’t that sound nice rolling off the tongue)!  I can hardly believe it!

When I got my email saying I was accepted to study abroad in Ghana for a year, it was so unreal. It wasn’t until just yesterday,  as I was reading other blogs from fellow YES Abroad- Ghana finalists, that it all finally sunk in. The only thing I could think to myself is; That totally happened!

I’m going to Ghana.

Along with the excitement, came sorrow. I will be leaving behind;  friends, family, and the luxuries of living in the U.S. But I will (hopefully) find; indepence, new language skills, and a cultural understanding that I will be able to take with me for the rest of my life. So even though it will be so hard, it will be the BEST experience ever!!

I just can’t wait to tell you everything that happens along my nine month journey!

      I know I’m so glad group there is more than one group four member, (REPRESENT)!
      Do you know if any other people in our group got the scholarship?
