As I begin to prepare for this journey, I have a lot on my mind. First, I have to complete a shopping list of everything I will need such as necessary hygiene products, books, and light clothing for the hot Cameroonian weather. I need to look more into my flight information just to be sure that I am on top of everything. I got my visa early so…there are not worries there. The one thing that I am doing to mentally and emotionally prepare myself, to live abroad for a whole semester, is getting more informed. I am learning more about Cameroonian music, culture, food, traditions, etiquette, and politics. I will continue to do this until I leave the U.S. I am also getting to know my traveling buddies through a Facebook group that we specifically created for ourselves. I have also been in touch with alums who have been done this same program. Their advices are very helpful.
