Erin McCallum ’20 – CIEE Iringa, Tanzania

Habari! My name is Erin and I will be studying in Iringa, Tanzania this semester! I’m in my junior year studying Psychology and Leadership. It has always been a dream of mine to travel to Africa, and I am so grateful this dream is becoming a reality (and yes, as I’m sure you were wondering, my most played song on Spotify for the year is already Africa by Toto).

I am beyond excited to learn Swahili and immerse myself in a culture so different from my own, and also explore the beautiful scenery that makes up Tanzania. Some passions of mine include being outside, reading, writing, music, and my faith. I hope to see how these passions grow in my study abroad experience, as well as what new passions I discover! Thanks for journeying with me as I seek to capture what I learn!
