Ibi Okusaga: An Island Child in Fiji

So it was Easter recently and going to Fiji just seemed like the right thing to do. To be honest I knew nothing about Fiji before then, except from the fact Fiji water comes from there.

Studying in Australia, Fiji seemed like such a desirable place to visit because the flight there is relatively short only 3 hours away. Continue reading

Warami Eresanara: Thoughts on my Trip to China- Part 2.

As Confucius once said, “Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I will understand.” China was a great experience for me because I learned a lot. I learned a lot from the diversity of the group; having both business and engineering majors as well as computer science and social work in the mix helped broaden my view. Although diversity in the academic area was key, I also learned a lot from just interacting with the group on a social level.

Warami Eresanara: Visiting China!

I graduated from College (University) in 2015 and sadly I haven’t had the time to go anywhere because of work. Writing about a trip I took to China during my time in College (January 2015) brings back so many memories. I don’t know that I remember the trip in great detail, but I will try my best to be as accurate as possible.

Before I proceed, I would like to inform you that my trip was as much an educational trip as it was a fun one; which essentially means that I went to China with my school (for a class) but I still had a lot of fun!

I am going to be dividing this post into two parts; the first will be about all the provinces we went to and the places we visited while we were there, and the second will be more of my reflections/ thoughts about my time in China. I would also like you to know that although I will be highlighting some similarities and differences between China and America I will try my best to be gracious.
