Project Description

Czech Republic

I wanted to thank you again for the AMAZING support, I had a fantastic time. Prague was such an amazing city that had some of the oldest, most beautiful architecture and the most interesting history of all the cities I visited in Europe. I was constantly in awe of the beauty of the buildings, and I laughed when the locals considered buildings made after the 1700s as modern. Prague’s history was filled with legend, sadness, and victory and really reflected some of the modern struggles the world is going through now. I loved my classes because I focused on culture, art, and global gender perspectives that taught me how to view the world with a new lens. From Prague, I visited so many cities of which my favorites were Berlin, Lagos, and Split. My time abroad was fun, difficulty, and above all, a learning experience and I have taken so much home with me.
