Spring 2017 student Deja Marie Marsh“Ghana is the port that I’m most excited to visit for many reasons. Ghana’s history is so important to me and my ancestors. I feel the only way I can truly learn about my history is to actually be here and to learn about the people and the culture.” – Deja Marie Marsh, Delaware State University
