Why I wanted to go on this trip: When deciding on what program I wanted to go on I wanted to stay true to a few things. One being the overall meaning behind the trip. The Ghana trip was based on the word “Sankofa”. Which translates to going back to learn from the past. I saw this as being the most powerful meaning out all of the trips I looked into. There were many trips that seemed like their big emphasis was on tourism and vacation. In my mind these trips should have more of a personal connection, rather than a purpose of sight seeing. Africa has one the richest histories and cultures, especially the Ghanaian culture. I believe that this trip will be life changing and will open my eyes in a way that can only be seen when experiencing life in another place.
