From our partner Sabree Harlem Parents blog:
My name is Nyasha Franklin, and I am from Harlem, NY. I am a junior at Mount Holyoke College, studying Anthropology and Africana Studies.
I have been accepted into a Spanish Studies Abroad Program in Havana, Cuba, for the spring semester, and I am so excited for my trip! During the semester, I will be studying at Universidad de la Habana, improving my Spanish speaking skills and studying the history and culture(s) of Cuba.
I hope to learn more about Afro-Cubans and extend my current studies about the African Diaspora to my 5 month trip! I’m excited to see how my experiences as a Black american in the U.S. relate to those in other countries of the Americas!
Thankfully, I have been able to secure funding from Mount Holyoke to cover part of my tuition while abroad. However I won’t be able to work while I am abroad, so there is still a gap that I am asking for assistance to fill. Any and every donation and share is greatly appreciated.
Lunch for the Semester (not included in Room and Board): $ 950
Total = $3,180
This trip will not only afford me an opportunity to further my scholarship, but it will also allow me to explore my independence. I hope to gather a better understanding of myself and where I might fit in the global community!
Thank you all for taking a peek at my gofundme, I hope this page finds you well!
Pce&luv, you are all so very appreciated.
With gratitude, Nyasha
