Nagina Ahmadi WS’19 spent last fall semester studying abroad in Seville, Spain through HWS’ Center for Global Education. This past week, Nagina had the opportunity to share her experiences with students at the Geneva High School. By discussing her travels, the culture in Spain, the Spanish language, and her overall experience, Nagina provided high school students with an amazing presentation outlining her semester.
By college students sharing their experiences with younger, high school students, college students are able to better understand what they learned abroad by taking a few moments to reflect before teaching someone else. Additionally, high school students look up to older students; thus, Nagina was viewed as a model and inspirational student. By talking about her travels in Seville through Global Education, she shared with students how college and traveling take you to places where you learn about other cultures and histories, but also about yourself.
