Cynthia's Journey to Ghana

Current Location

New York, New York, USA

Hey there! My name is Cynthia Smith and I'm studying international affairs in Cape Coast, Ghana for the next four months. I can't wait to share everything about this trip with you!


I've engaged in the arduous process of traveling home for a temporary period! Because of this, I've experienced time in Ghana, England and the United States, and we got to meet face-to-face in Queens!


Ghana has a long and dark history with the transatlantic slave trade, and both Ghanaians and foreign tourists can visit the slave castles along the coast to learn more.

Field Notes

I attended a Ghanaian wedding and learned all about the way American weddings differ from those that take place here in Ghana!
