Amanda's Journey to South Africa

Current Location

Potchefstroom, South Africa

Hello! My name is Amanda, and I can't wait to show you what South Africa is all about! Join me on my adventures as I study aquatic ecosystem health at North West University in Potchefstroom.


Three Americans, one Dutch and one British girl all took a trip to one of the most famous cities South Africa has: Cape Town! Be sure to also check out my Cape Town album for a bunch of cool videos!


Every single person has a different perspective that is all their own! This journal is about my perspective of South Africa from before I left, and how it has evolved up to now.

Field Notes

I had the amazing opportunity to be able to sit with a home-school class and show them a PowerPoint slideshow I made of the United States! Check out the kids' answers to these common questions, below.


After I visited with the home-school class, I was able to take a stroll through a girls-only boarding school in Potchefstroom! Here are all the pictures I took.
