My time in South Africa~ Maggie Meek

Maggie is a rising sophomore from Springfield, Missouri. She has four sisters and a brother. She was a three sport athlete in high school playing basketball, soccer, and tennis. She recently traveled to Cape Town, South Africa with the program Leadabroad for a leadership service program. The group sometimes in the morning had small lessons and then did a couple days of service in the community. The service they participated in was going into a school, playing and teaching the kids and going into a local community to talk to the families to get to know them and their cultures. In their free time the program got to do a lot of touristy things. Maggie’s favorite things she participated in on the trip was bungie jumping at the highest commercial bungie jump in the world and playing with the elephants at the elephant sanctuary. She also enjoyed seal snorkeling. By being able to go on this trip Maggie was able to make many new friends and explore a whole new culture. She can’t wait to travel again!
