Daisy McCoy shares her experiences in Turkey, where she spent the fall semester at Memet Akif Ersoy University. While at the University she visited classes, helped faculty and students with their English-a learning experience for a math professor, gave presentations on math and math education, and experienced being female in Turkey as she became part of the community. She also had opportunities to travel around Turkey, visiting schools and families as well as seeing tourist sites. She managed to escape near disasters with the help of strangers, meet interesting people, and experience the warm welcome that the Turkish people give to guests. She said, “I have always wanted to experience living in another culture and this is the wonderful opportunity that I had in Turkey.” Produced by MEISA.
