My Last Day In Ghana

The words “I did it!” keep repeating in my mind on my last day here in Ghana. 

It is a truly empowering experience to successfully move to another country alone for an extended period of time without a set schedule or plan. I’m so thankful for all of the inspirational people I met and for all of the amazing adventures I went on. This trip will be something I’ll cherish for the rest of my life. 

Here are some of my favorite moments:
