Lucinda - 2019

I feel as though I am much more confident in myself, and my abilities to navigate new places. I feel as though personally this experience has given me better social skills when talking to people from very different places. The course I undertook touched on several sensitive topics such as race relations, immigration and how many things are portrayed in the media, and even though it was not directly linked to my study area.
