My time in South Africa is the best experience I have ever had. I went way out of my comfort zone and got to experience and learn so much about the culture! I never in a million years thought I would eat a sheep's cheek (a Xhosa tradition, not just curiosity).... This program offers so many amazing opportunities and is coordinated so well! South Africa has been (as cheesy as it sounds) a life changing experience! I don't want to leave but it just means that I get to come back again! -Ellen
