When you study abroad you are exposed to a culture that might differ from your own, @itslinieeduhh had this to say about her own experience: “Today my heart was filled with joy as I experienced the South African culture. Everyone is soooo happy and they respect one another. I automatically felt the unity in the Langa Township community the moment I stepped foot in Langa. The children there laugh and smile with no care in the world!!! Also, everyone knows one another!!! I found that quite impressive. The streets are filled with colorful Art and talented people...”
