Meet the Students- Chrystal

Hello! My name is Chrystal. I am sophomore biology major at Quinnipiac University. I had wanted participate in the QU301 South Africa course because I had always wanted to go to Africa, and this class presented a perfect opportunity to do so. I feel that being a part of this class and trip will be an excellent learning experience all around.

Before this class, there was not much I knew about South Africa, aside from its location on a map. I was aware of the apartheid and how the white minority controlled the country for quite some time. Nelson Mandela had become president of South Africa after being released from prison. I have expanded my knowledge of South Africa and its history since being in this class and I am looking forward to continue growing it even further. I now know that there are three main groups of people, the blacks, whites, and the coloured.

Ever since I found out that, I was officially going to be going to South Africa I have been beyond excited. I am looking forward to the entire trip and class experience as a whole. However, more specifically, I am really looking forward to being able to see and experience another country’s landscaping, people and culture. I think that this trip will be a fantastic awakening and understanding of a life other than our own.
