Memories from the Maghreb – A Farewell Video

24 STUDENTS TOOK A CHANCE IN THE MAGHREB

Now, the end is near.

And I don’t know what to feel. Four months was a long time, but it all went by too fast. After the past week of feeling really ready to go home, I find myself not so sure anymore. Two days left in Rabat. I disregarded getting lost in my confusion and instead looked towards my fellow students to remember what a semester this was… to these great people who are now my friends. They share similar feelings – both good and bad. And we all went through this together.

I asked everyone to answer one of the following for one final video:
“I will miss ______ “, “I’ll never forget when______”, & “Morocco was______.”

So this is it.

This is what we have to say.
This is what we want to remember.
This is how we feel after living a semester abroad, in the Spring of 2014, in Rabat, Morocco.

Or at least, this is how I see it.

I am Meghan Johns, a 20-year-old student who comes from the small, but lovely Carthage College in Wisconsin. I study studio art, art history, and the French language there, but I am really excited to begin learning Arabic in Morocco. In my free time, I draw and write music. Traveling is always a must on my to-do list. I cannot wait to see what Rabat has to offer. You can guess how excited I am to start my adventures there this next semester, but the only thing I&#39;ll love more than having them is sharing them, with you.</span></p>
