Buckeyes Abroad: Maya Outlaw

MayaOutlaw2Maya Outlaw, a junior biomedical engineering major participated on the Between France and Morocco: Diversity in the Francophone World education abroad program in May 2018.

My education abroad program studied the intertwined history of France and Morocco and how colonization effected both countries.

My transformational moment was when we visited an after school/supplemental educational facility. While at this site we heard from young women who were able to be successful in school and obtain their life goals because of this program. One girl stated that her dream was to become an agricultural engineer, and as an engineering major, it made me feel so grateful to have access to education and an infinite number of opportunities available to me.

Learning and immersing yourself in new cultures makes you appreciate what you have so much more, while also expanding your mind to what the world has to offer. The way someone perceives different experiences is so vastly unique, and I loved my study abroad experience because I was able to learn about the different ways people from Ohio State as well as in France and Morocco experience life.
