GWSB students share their experiences from around the world

Mueller HutKia Ora! Greetings from New Zealand! I have been in the land where there are more sheep than people for just a little over two months; however, it feels like I have been here forever. The culture, the lifestyle, the people, and of course, the scenery are all so spectacular. The unique city I currently call home, Dunedin, has a population of 400,000 and is situated on the coast of the South island of NZ, famous for its great beaches – and penguins!  Since NZ is located in the Southern Hemisphere, I was able to leave behind the DC winter to catch the end of the New Zealand summer and this has been such a treat! READ MORE
