The people in Ghana do not hesitate to offer their feedback and thoughts. Really, you don't even have to ask for it as they are taught to be honest and speak their minds. Sometimes Ghanaians would tell me I need to lose weight and slim down, which I did end up doing after eating their food and all of the intense dancing. However, on a leadership tip, they were truly blown away by me and I was surprised. They received me very well since day 1. They always complimented me saying things lie, "Oh, you speak so well," "You have a strong presence on stage, and "You have taught me a lot."
Also, several times on the trip my professor would call me to speak on his and our behalf. I spoke on behalf of our group as we presented laptops to a grade school in Accra, I spoke on behalf of our professor at his high school's alumni reunion and a few other times. This trip has really helped me to see that I have a talent for public and motivational speaking, even in another country. People listen to me and then afterwards tell me that they learned from me...even grown people will tell me this. Now I know that I must continue to hone in on this talent so I can share the things I've learned with others.
