Wyatt Foster, Senegal 2018
Wyatt chose to take her Global Citizen Year in Pambal, Senegal because of her interest in women’s health and to strengthen her French skills. For eight months she lived with a host family and worked as a teaching assistant for an English teacher at her community’s local high school.
“My Global Citizen Year was a turning point in my life. It changed how I see the world and the people in it. Coming into my time at AU after my GYC affected every class choice I’ve made, every essay I’ve written, and all the clubs and organizations I’ve gotten involved with. Global Citizen Year will push you to be strong, to be vulnerable, to be open-minded, to be patient, and to realize that learning doesn’t just come from sitting in a classroom.”
