South Africa Alumni Testimonials
Lauren Hertzler Temple South Africa 2011; Major: Journalism
My summer session in South Africa has been more than I could’ve asked for. I am a journalism student, with a focus in news-editorial writing, and before coming on this trip, I thought I would be sheltered to writing most of the time. Instead, Dr. Bhayroo has given me the push and confidence to successfully film and edit three video packages and one documentary on various topics. I also wrote one of the most intriguing and interesting stories I¹ve ever produced on South African education. I truly have gained more experience in journalism on this trip than I ever have before, and learned how to cope with language barriers and organizational issues in an entirely different culture. Also, the field trips Dr. Bhayroo planned for us were very interesting and educational.
