Absa Samba is a Social Work major and international student from Champlain College who's ready to take her appetite for new cultural experiences to Shanghai!

She'll also be keeping us posted on her goals: speaking basic Mandarin, making dumplings, and getting international work experience. Absa spent this last spring semester abroad in the UK and was born and raised in The Gambia, so she'll be adding a FOURTH CONTINENT to her life experience this summer! Let Absa show you how she plans on making the most of her time abroad.
