“Traveling is learning” (Kenyan Proverb), and Robin is incredibly humbled and excited to sail with the Fall 2018 SAS family to learn, grow, and embrace the world. This voyage is her first, and is a testament that vision boards in fact work, because she has always wanted to be a part of Semester at Sea!
Robin is originally from Monticello, Florida, but calls Mother Africa her home. She enjoys listening to music and spoken word, cooking, watching SuperSoul Sunday episodes, and of course…traveling. Robin is a graduate of Florida State University where she received a Bachelors in Communication Sciences and Disorders, and received her Masters in Student Affairs in Higher Education from Missouri State University.
Currently, Robin serves as a Community Director and Instructor at the University of North Carolina Asheville, as well as the Student Affairs Coordinator for “Discover Ghana”, a month long faculty-led study abroad program. It was during Robin’s time in Ghana, West Africa where she began discovering her identity, and watched her passion, purpose, and life’s intention begin to unfold. She experienced what it means to return, seek, go back, and learn from the past in order to find context on how to move forward in creating a better and brighter future for herself and others. Robin looks forward to continuing this process with students, staff, faculty, and the entire SAS community. She awaits the opportunity to be present in conversations that allow for courageous sharing, acknowledgement, respect, acceptance, and those “aHa moments” when understanding is truly understood. It is sure to be an incredible Fall 2018 voyage around the world, and Robin welcomes it with peace and open arms.
