Interview with Abriel Newton

What made you choose this particular GO trip?
I wanted an experience out of my comfort zone, and a chance to meet the people of a place.

How long were you there?
Fifteen days.

What struck you most about the people that you met?
Especially in N’come, it seemed to me, that because of a lack of material possessions distracting them, the people focused more on each other, and relationships, and things that actually matter. Makes me feel like I’m missing something about the human experience, and I don’t know quite what that is.

Would you change anything about your trip If so, what?
I would’ve stayed longer!

What advice do you have for someone traveling abroad?
Don’t be shy, or try not to be. Get right in and get the experience for all it’s worth.
