Buckeyes Abroad: Mary Grace Sylvester

Mary Grace Sylvester on service-learning in GhanaMary Grace Sylvester is a senior majoring in mechanical engineering who studied abroad on the Engineering Service-Learning in Ghana program during Winter Break 2019.

"Engineering Service Learning in Ghana was an incredible opportunity to demonstrate and develop skills that I've learned in the classroom for the last four years. We worked alongside locals, and as a result, all of us really engaged with Ghana's beautiful and vivid culture. We ate tons of good food, traveled bumpy roads to beautiful destinations, and overall became better people and engineers. Ghana: you were incredible, and the mark you left on all of us was indelible."
