Ep. 3 Studying Abroad All Over The World feat. Shomari

On Episode 3 of HBGT, I sat down with Shomari to discuss her experiences studying abroad in not one, not two, but FIVE countries since the age of 16πŸ™†πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ! We highlight the real deal about studying abroad in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Europe specifically as a Black American woman. Her story is powerful, inspiring and informative! I hope you all enjoy this one and please share with any students you know!
