Testimonial: Alosha Southern, Grinnell College

Alosha Southern

Traveling to India to live with host families and study brought me more outside of my comfort zone than I have ever been before. At the beginning of the semester, the cultural transition (as well as logistical adjustments like the food and weather) was at times overwhelming. But from my very first day on the program, I felt so supported not only by the other students on my program, but by all of the staff at ACM. The course topics enhanced my understanding of cultural and social nuances in India, and it was very rewarding to feel as if I was able to understand and communicate in Hindi by the end of the semester.
