Testimonial 3: Students on Wintersession Program
The Aya Centre made arrangements for the two-week visit of a group of students from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. Below are some of their unedited comments:
"I absolutely enjoyed the canopy walk and the tour of Tema. Those, along with the visit to the elementary school really stuck out in my mind. The trip has surely been a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget."
"I learned so much about this country; I talk to people here in the U.S. and tell about this country as if it were mine. I will cherish this experience and will never forget it. This is the greatest study abroad program out there."
"My trip to Ghana has changed my views, thoughts, and beliefs. I feel more tolerant, cultured, and possess a yearning to travel again and soon to interact with the surrounding nations to be able to benefit from others."
"There were several components of the trip that I enjoyed. The Kumasi Open Market was intense; the canopy walk was exciting; and the slave castle was emotional and chilling. I am happy to have interacted, talked, and made friends with so many people."
"This trip was an absolute blast. There were so many eye-opening and enlightening experiences. From the canopy walk to the radio show there were so many bonds and memories that will last a lifetime."
"This trip was everything I could ask for and more. The trip gives you a newfound appreciation. I was exhausted by the time we got back to the hotel. It was a trip that I will never forget because of the activities: canopy walk, the beach, playing soccer, etc. I would gladly do it again."
"The trip was great. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever be able to come to Africa. Every aspect was a gift. Being immersed into such a rich and vivacious culture was more than I could ever hope for. Each person I encountered during my 2 weeks contributed a little bit of my life and I will never forget him or her."

"This was the trip of a lifetime and I’m glad I had the opportunity to be a part of it. This was my first time traveling outside of the country and on a plane. I can say that Ghana was the beginning of my travel endeavors. I learned so much about Ghana and I look forward to learning about other cultures."
"My experience in Ghana has challenged many misconceptions I’ve had about Africa and have again reminded me to make and effort in not being judgmental based on stereotypes. I believe that I have grown as an individual with a better understanding of social relations and social theories."
