This program gave me the opportunity to meet incredible people and learn about the multicultural country of South Africa by immersing myself in the culture. All four homestays were unique and provided insight into the diverse cultures of South Africa. The host families were welcoming, kind, and eager to share their life with students. This program is incredible in giving students the confidence to explore a new country, meet new people and learn about this unique country. I learned how to become comfortable feeling uncomfortable and how to see the beauty in each day.
