Jamilah Muhammad

Jamilah Muhammad, senior communications major, studied abroad in Senegal through the Francophone Africa: Between Tradition and Modernity program in May 2018.

"I feel as if in this one week alone I learned and grew more than one semester. I went on this trip to really get a deeper understanding and connection with my anscestors, and every day I felt myself learning more and more about myself and my people."

"We had the pleasure to take a dance class on the beach and that experience was something that was the pinnacle of my trip. I love to dance, no matter the genre, and being able to express and connect with both my American and Senegalese peers around me, it was a moment in time that I will never forget."
