55 Days Abroad Makes for Permanent Attitude Change

Another great piece by Unofficial Ambassador to Morocco and Florida native Rachel Joyner has been published by The Tallahassee Democrat! This summer, Rachel is teaching English to youth who have had limited access to education at the Al-Akhwayan Azrou Center for Community Development in Ifrane, Morocco.
