Traveler Bio

Hi students! My name is Isis West and I will be sharing my experiences in Gaborone, Botswana with you over the next few weeks. Throughout this time, I will be sharing with you about the culture, country and language of this fascinating southern African country.

I live in Gaborone, Botswana at the University of Botswana. I am fully immersed in the local culture here, largely because my roommates are from here! They speak Setswana, which I will share more about in the coming weeks. Living here has opened my mind to a better understanding of different perspectives and cultures.

I am excited to meet you and learn more about your interests as we go on this adventure together. I hope to inspire you all to reach beyond your dreams and do something as daring as studying abroad. I can't wait to immerse you all in Botswana's culture, too!
