I am about to embark on an 8 month adventure in which I immerse myself in Senegalese culture and the Wolof language. My adventure starts at the University of Florida in Gainesville. I’ll be spending two months there in an intensive African Languages Initiative Program. I’ll then fly to Dakar, Senegal for 6 months of continuing my Wolof studies with the Baobab Center, taking classes with CIEE, homestays, excursions, embarking on my honors research and other fun exciting things that may come my way! In between all of that, I’ll be meeting lots of new people, trying new things and new foods, getting to know myself and understanding the world better – and posting most of it here! And at some point, sleeping and relaxing are a part of the plan! Ayca!
