“The Wells program in Dakar was a great balance of opportunities for cultural immersion and attaining new levels of independence. I gained comfortable fluency in French and made lasting friendships. The Senegalese lifestyle helped me question the aspects of my life that I had previously taken for granted; it also helped me appreciate the unique experiences that have changed my perspective. This was one of my most challenging life experiences, but the intellectual growth I've gained has taught me to live actively and consciously, because there is something to be learned in every moment.The Wells program in Dakar was a great balance of opportunities for cultural immersion and attaining new levels of independence.
