Traveling forces you to leave your comfort zone and question your identity more than any other experience could. You don’t know what it’s like to be a foreigner until you’re in someone else’s home country not knowing their language or [social] norms.”
— Aiyana Crews, The Maroon Tiger
In America, I was always trying to gain: gain more opportunities, more accolades and more material things to show how successful I am, but I was incognizant that I was losing one important thing: time. Time to be thankful for what I have achieved and spend valuable moments with the ones I love and who love me. Rwanda has allowed for me to not plan life anymore, just be available for it.”
— Greg Barber, Fall '15 Ambassador
