When I decided I was studying abroad in South Africa I got questions like, “Why did you choose this random country?” “Why wouldn’t you go to Italy?” “Don’t you think it’s unsafe to go to South Africa because you’re a girl?” “Are you going to come back with Ebola?”. I felt like each question got more and more ridiculous, but regardless I received so much support and love before I embarked on this crazy adventure.
