June 2018 - July 2018
I participated in the three week program, "Leadership Through Mandela's Example,"on a merit-based scholarship through CIEE (Council on International Educational Exchange). It was an extremely transformative program, and I learned so much about volunteering, leadership, and culture. Throughout the program, I tried to capture different parts of South Africa and how it's changed, some obvious, and some not so obvious.
