My semester in photos: learn from the relationships you are given - Travis from Waynesburg (part 9)

Krista Simmons, Marlene Wall, Susie Lambright, Justine Sutton, and Taylor Nelson at the beach in Klaipeda, Lithuania.
Keywords: Tri-S, Love

Lesson: Learn from the relationships you are given.

As part of the program the study abroad students are assigned to groups in which they meet to debrief about their time overseas. I was bless to have Marlene and Susie be my Tri-S moms. The group is great in that we build relationships with our fellow study abroads, get to develop relationships with faculty, and most importantly get fed for free. This photo is from our final Tri-S that was held on the beach as we waited for the other two members our group.

My semester in photos: befriend locals - Travis from Waynesburg (Part 8)

CMAP students and study abroad students at the beach in Klaipeda, Lithuania.
Keywords: Friends, CMAP, Explore

Lesson: Befriend locals.

When coming to LCC the program encourages you to take opportunities with the school whether that be an internship, editing papers, helping with chapel band, or one of the many other options. As an education major I decided it would be beneficial for me both to help tech English to third and fourth grade students, as well as become part of a program called CMAP (Community Multicultural Awareness Program). The program is aimed for tenth grade students to learn and discuss global issues such as human rights, genocide, and human trafficking. While the program only last six weeks some of the students still wanted to continue the relationship that was built over the sessions. This is a photo that was taken of them showing us a part of the beach neither my friend Taylor Nelson or myself have been too.
