Miriam is passionate about social justice, mind-changing discussion and music. To her, music is the language everyone understands. She hopes to explore Senegal's musical diversity and treasures while sharing her passion for singing and the ukulele with her peers. Her goals for the year are redefining "time" and to explore foreigners with curiosity instead of strangeness. After GCY, she will study International Studies in Vancouver, Canada at Simon Fraser University.
