Hello Everyone,

My name is Crystal Holmes-Smith. I am a graduate student at SUNY Buffalo State, in the Literacy Specialist Program. I am honored to be taking part in my second study abroad experience with Buffalo State. I am looking forward to the opportunity to, yet again, immerse myself in a new culture, as I continue gathering experiences and tools that will help me to become a culturally responsive educator.  I am excited for the growth, new understandings, and even challenges I know will come with this trip, and I invite you to take this journey with me!

*9 more days!!!!!*
