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!
