My experience in Ghana was not only eye-opening, it was life changing. Interacting with local journalists taught me the value of perseverance and adaptability. Be prepared to challenge any expectations and stereotypes, including ones you didn’t know you had. If you’re on the fence about going: go! I can’t put into words how valuable this experience will be.
