After I finished high school, I decided to live in Ghana for 5 months volunteering as a Medical Assistant. This amazing opportunity was provided by the organization Lattitude Global Volunteering. I quickly became part of a lovely family in Akim Oda, met amazing people who are now some of my closest friends, spent my weekdays expanding my knowledge at the Jubilee Hospital working alongside experienced nurses and doctors, and my weekends exploring the beautiful country. To say the least, deciding to take a Gap Year was one of the best decisions of my life.
