My time in Morocco was very informative.   As my time at Whitman is coming to a close, I’ve been looking at ways to go abroad again, be it back to Morocco or someplace new!

I’m in the process of applying to scholarships and grants that will allow me to do this after graduating.  My hope is to pick up some more Arabic and then to go to a school of public health in Paris.

My experience was very empowering.  I managed to live comfortably in a completely new city and culture, and conduct social research!  Whenever I’m overwhelmed by the future, I think about what I achieved in Rabat and know that I can accomplish what I want to do in life.
