- Stories of Students
Life should not only circle around the coronavirus news, so here is a throwback to our African Regional Week! It was full of exciting events portraying history, culture and diversity of the African countries prepared by our students and staff.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The week started with Morocco and Western Sahara Conflict Presentation prepared by Leila, our intern from Western Sahara, and Chadi (Morocco, UWCD'20). It was followed by Western Sahara Cultural Day which introduced a Henna workshop and traditional clothing of the country.
A discussion about Afro Hair gave everyone space to openly ask, answer and discuss questions around the history, myths and truths, the types and textures and the struggle of hair. The next day was marked by our Afro-Beats CAS group performance led by Oumaru (Liberia, UWCD'20). Finally, we had African Regional Evening Performance: it was the last Regional Evening of this year and it truly united us all.
