This summer I went on a service trip to Ghana through the GLA (Global Leadership Adventures) organization. I spent two weeks there doing a variety of different activities and service projects. Everyday we would spend the majority of our time focusing on improving the english skills of the local children. I personally worked with kids entering the 3rd and 4th grade. The topics we taught ranged from spelling games to basic lessons. During my time there I also got to learn a great deal about the rich culture of Ghana. From the history of music to past traditions. Being able to go on this trip was amazing and the children there were some of the happiest people I have met.
