Jalen's Semester In Ghana

Hello, Everybody! My name is Jalen, I will soon be a senior at University At Albany, and will be spending the latter half of the year in Ghana, Africa. This is an extremely important journey to me, as very few people get to spend 4 months in their ancestral homeland. Throughout my time at UA, I have come to put an emphasis on education and diversity, and have been on The Dean's List every year that I have been enrolled.
Going to Ghana has been a dream of mine for a while now, one of the last conversations I had with my father before he died was our plans to go to Africa. Now everything is almost set up for my trip, and the only thing I need is some extra financial assistance. I appreciate anything that is donated, and thank you in advance.
