About

Time to BLOG :-)

I am a senior Human Development major in the College of Human Ecology at Cornell University. I am from Westchester, New York and this fall I will be spending 4 and a half months at the University of Ghana. I am really excited about taking a few classes at the University, including a local language class to learn how to communicate in Twi. I plan on interning with a doctor hopefully in a field related to sexual health or obstetrics and gynecology. I also want to spend my free time volunteering in a local primary school for children from disadvantaged backgrounds. My dream careers would be to become a doctor and a teacher, and I plan to pursue both of these passions while in Ghana. My trip to Ghana does not end in December—I plan to make life-long connections with the people I meet there so I can continue to make a difference through international service and advocacy. Follow my blog and share the excitement of flavorful foods, hiking adventures, traveling to local countries, volunteering with kids, and networking (and celebrating!) with local and international friends. I am an open-minded, down-to-Earth, curious person and I am sure if you read my blogs you will have fun and feel like you are here in Ghana too. Feel free to keep in touch and post!

  1. Thanks for your comment Mouss. the deep human connection has been a major focus in most my my writing in the last few weeks. I think it is one of the most important parts of my time spent here in Ghana. i hope to keep friendships strong and continue to enjoy all the smiles , laughter and good times 🙂

  2. How do you leave comments on the blogs. I am only able to leave commnets only after someone else has left a bloog. I loved your last post… I think the phrase “To whom much is given, much is expected” sort of sums up your idea of responsibilty to the human race.

  4. Hey Kaylin,
    Your blog is Great, and I fully enjoyed reading it. Are you still in Ghana? I, myself have an interest in moving to Ghana and could use all the information you can share with me in regards to volunteer work in teaching, or the medical field, housing, etc….looking forward to your reply, by the way I Love Ghana Too!!!

  5. Hey Kaylin,

    I am a sophomore from Washington University in St. Louis planning to travel to Ghana in the Spring. I know this blog hasn’t been updated in a while but I wondered if you had time to connect by email.

    Thanks,
    Mimi
