Buckeyes Abroad: Jera Copley

Jera Copley on Global May Uganda education abroad

"Global May Uganda was an experience of a lifetime! We were able to learn so much about the culture and the people’s human security through lectures from various professionals and site visits where we got to speak with community members. We had a ton of fun going on a safari, hiking to waterfalls, visiting the equator, making coffee, and so much more! I am so thankful that I got to travel to Uganda with this great group of people!," exclaims pharmaceutical sciences major Jerring Copley.

"During our education abroad program in Uganda, we got to visit (resident director) Dr. Salome Fout's home in Bujuko. We had such a fun time painting, singing songs to greet others, learning how to play the instruments, and learning the traditional dances. At the end of the night we were able to wear the traditional outfits and have a true African dinner. The night ended with stories around a camp fire. I can't thank Dr. Fout's enough for opening up her home to us and giving us such a memorable experience!"
