Cultural Immersion

Influenced by the fall 2014 Global Focus Week, sophomore nursing student Leah Wright served on a global trip to Cameroon through CGE.

Wright said Global Focus Week inspired her to use her talents on a global scale. The diversity presented at the 2014 Global Expo encouraged her interest in working in a
different culture.

“You’re living with the (Cameroonian) people with no electricity, the toilet is pretty much a hole in the ground and (it is) just kind of rough,” Wright said.

According to the CGE website, the Cameroon team that Wright participated in was able to perform dramas filled with hope as well as
provide education on HIV and AIDS.

Wright’s experience opened her eyes to international opportunities and strengthened her spiritual walk. Global Focus Week helped Wright to “think a little bit outside the box” and become more aware of different cultures.

“It really makes you step out in faith and rely on God,” Wright said.
