Olivia Gotwald, a senior at the College of Charleston, gives us not just blog but a VLOG (video blog)! Catch a glimpse into the life of LEAD Cape Town student by watching the video linked below!


This experience is something that is really hard to describe. I had no idea what I was walking into other than the fact that we would be staying in Cape Town for 5 weeks. I did not know anyone on the program and did not really know what we would be learning about. After the first day of being in Cape Town things began to click for me. I met so many people and dove into the curriculum. Even though we have been here for just a week I have learned more than I did in a full semester in college. I did not expect this at all. The only way to prepare for this trip is to go in completely open and ready to learn new things. I did not expect to find such great friends or learn such valuable things but Global Lead has given me such an opportunity to broaden my horizons and take things on with an open mind. I encourage you all to watch the attached video to fully understand what I mean when I say this trip is something really amazing!
