China Volunteer 2013-14
Hey there! My name is Raheem and although I have always lived in Boston, MA, my heart has been across the globe and back ever since I was born. Since my mother, of Malay and Arab descent, is from Singapore, I first visited my relatives there at seven months old! Last year I also had the opportunity to travel with classmates for a one-month language and culture immersion trip to Japan (including a two-week homestay), as well as a service trip to New Orleans. It was the combination of these trips and all my earlier international experiences that inspired me to join this Bridge Year program.
