Student Reflections

“I think after this trip my ability to understand my role as a global citizen is heightened. Between keeping in touch with those I met in Morocco to small acts of global citizenship (whether they be environmentally or socially), I feel I have a much better understanding.”

 

 “I definitely think that the best aspects of the OACS Morocco Program were the Homestay families and my service site. I had the amazing opportunity to build such strong relationships with my family and my students. In only a month and a half, they have grown to mean so much to me and I plan to continue my relationships with them despite no longer being in Morocco.”
