An Unbelievable Opportunity
I can’t believe I’m finally doing SEMESTER AT SEA! I've been wanting to be a part of this voyage ever since I’ve heard about it on Road Rules when I was younger. The concept of traveling around the world on a ship, sounded like such an amazing experience I just could not pass it up. I will be spending the night on the Great Wall of China, sitting under Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, climbing on the ancient Angkor Wat, and posing in front of the infamous Taj Mahal. How many people can say they have done that? This voyage is going to be a remarkable, life-changing experience that I will take with me for the rest of my life. I feel like I am opening the doors for future SAS students of color to be apart of this remarkable voyage. Being from Morehouse College, a historically Black college, it's very important that a representation of minorities is present on this ship. I think a diverse population of students on the ship will give a true reflection of all the different countries that we are visiting. Thank you Semester at Sea for giving me this life changing opportunity to join you on this amazing voyage!
