Scholar Perspectives

“I have learned to love myself more as a African American and to take pride in where I come from. I will implement what I have learned from the Birthright AFRICA program into my career goals by using the confidence to speak up, seek help, and aspire to do and say what I dream of doing.”

– Mikel Haye, 2018 Scholar

“Growing up I was definitely very proud of my African roots but I think the Birthright AFRICA program has certainly played a major role in enhancing that awareness. I am now entertaining the idea of moving to the continent once I graduate college.”

– Peteso Barlee, 2018 Scholar
