AIFS Program: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Home University: Howard University
I’m Shaleen, originally from Nepal, studying at Howard University. “But you’re already abroad,” my friends said when I told them I’d be studying abroad…again. Well, that’s true, but I had to explore more. Argentina is the furthest place to home I’ll probably ever be; I don’t know anyone from Nepal who’s ever been there before. I was in Nairobi, Kenya, in December 2016, and I’ve found that people from around the world have more in common than I had ever imagined. You have to see it to believe it, and I’m trying to see as much as I can.
