In July and August of 2018, I was lucky enough to go on the Expedition to Tanzania 2 credit program with MEI Academy. The trip was lead by two of the best teachers I have ever had: Ted and Amanda. They were not only teachers, but mentors and friends. Throughout the span of 35 days, I have made some of my closest friends, I have grown both academically and personally, and I have been able to explore parts of the world that I never thought I would be able too. Overall, this program has without a doubt been one of the best experiences of my life, and I would stronngly recommend it to anyone who is considering studying abroad in high school.
