“It is difficult to find the right words to describe my time in Ghana in a way that will truly convey the impact it has had on my life. I haven’t traveled across Europe, bouncing from country to country taking Instagram-worthy photos to show my friends back home. I have, however, immersed myself in Ghanaian culture

and gained a much deeper understanding of the world around me–and my place in it.” Read more about Emma’s experience in Ghana here. EMMA LARSON Webster University St. Louis

“Webster University has given me the overseas experience right here in Ghana. The togetherness and the diversity of the

campus is one of my favorite things. This was highlighted for me especially during our annual Webster Works and Multicultural Thanksgiving Dinners.”
