As you all likely know, my name is Spencer Gilmore. I am going into my fourth year of Social Work at Wilfrid Laurier University and am doing my fall term of study at the University of Legon in Accra, Ghana. I chose Ghana because it is unlike anywhere I have ever traveled and allows me to further my social work studies form an entirely different perspective. I fly out from Pearson International Airport the morning of August 6, 2019, and will arrive in Accra, Ghana the morning of August 9. This is because I am flying through Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and have decided to spend two days there in the district of Bole. I look forward to experiencing as much as I can in the brief amount of time I will be in Ethiopia, before arriving in my temporary home of Ghana. I encourage you to find Ghana on a map if you are interested, but it is located on the North-Western coast of Africa and borders Burkina Faso, the Ivory Coast, Togo, and is near Nigeria. Formerly known as the Gold Coast, Ghana is a beautiful country on the Atlantic ocean. Lucky for me, Accra happens to be a coastal city with long beaches and so much to discover. I look forward to sharing my adventures with you all. Thank you for all the support and continued prayers!
