Each year 11 Batswana students are given the chance to come to a private American or Swiss high school for their senior year. These schools range from Deerfield Academy in Boston to Catlin Gabel in Portland. With no family and no friends, these 18 year olds are thrust into a new country, a city and a new school. My name is Monkgogi Otlhogile and I have been an international student at Catlin Gabel for the past 9 months. My biggest worry as my year at Catlin came to a close is that no one will have documented the diverse experiences we had at our various schools.
