Thank you so much for such an amazing semester.

When I arrived in Ghana ready to study abroad for a semester I had no idea that not only would this country be so welcoming but how welcomed I would be into A Rocha Ghana community. These past four months have been a whirlwind of learning, traveling, and working and my time spent with A Rocha Ghana has taught me so many incredible things and allowed me to meet so many amazing people.
  When I first walked into the Accra office and was told what I would be working on the rest of the semester I was at first a little intimidated. To be surrounded by new people, a new language and doing things I have never attempted before not only allowed me to learn new things but forced me to learn quickly. This semester I have had the opportunity to learn how to re-design a website, help to keep this blog updated and create the A Rocha Ghana Facebook group. My internship with A Rocha Ghana this semester has helped me to gain a new perspective on conservation initiatives and what it is like working in a foreign country. 
  Ultimately I would like to thank everyone at A Rocha Ghana and to all who helped to make my time here in Ghana an amazing experience full of new sights, people, food, nature, etc. I can only hope that I have made such an impression on those who have made such a great impression on me. Thank you so much and know that one day I will see you again. Until then, "nante yie".
