My name is Ryan Wragg. I am a junior from Cranston, Rhode Island and a finance major. I am really looking forward to being a part of this class and the trip in May. I have always been interested in the Apartheid and many of the things that Nelson Madela has done to liberate blacks in South Africa. I hope that over the course of this class I will learn more about the history of Apartheid and Nelson Mandela’s efforts to end it.
South Africa has always been a country that I have heard a lot about but never actually got the chance to visit. I am really excited for the trip and hope that it will be an experience I never forget. I have had the chance to visit many places in my life but I believe that South Africa will be nothing like any place I have been before. I really hope that I can learn a lot from this trip and take back experiences that I will remember for the rest of my life
