Allison Jacobel in New Zealand
Returning to New Zealand had been a dream of mine since I first fell in love with the country when I visited with my family in 1997. So when the opportunity presented itself for me to study abroad, the country was an obvious first choice.

I spent four months studying with the Arcadia Center for East African Studies in Arusha, Tanzania
