Interested students and faculty members were treated to food from Ecuador, Senegal, and Brazil while listening to three Culver Girls Academy graduates discuss their recently completed Global Citizen Year experiences in those countries.
The three 2012 graduates took a bridge year between graduation and college to spend the equivalent of a school year abroad serving an apprenticeship in economic development, public health, the environment, or education. They lived with host families during that time.
Hannah Bouline spent her year in Ecuador; Kim Asenbeck stayed with a family in Brazil; and Emily Ford was based in Senegal. All three girls said they would be happy to go back for another stay, with Ford saying “I would leave tomorrow” if given the opportunity.
Each person in the Global Citizen Year Fellows program keeps a blog during their stay. To read about Bouline, Asenbeck, and Ford’s experiences, click the link on their respective countries.
