Traveler Bio

Hello everyone! My name is Jennifer Ayarkwa, and most people call me Jenn or Jenny for short. I was born in New York City, and I now live in Columbus, Ohio. Columbus is the capital city of Ohio and it is a very large. The city is filled with people from all different types of backgrounds--just like New York City in many ways. My family is from Ghana, which is a country in West Africa. Being a child of Ghanaian immigrants has always helped me to appreciate people from any and every background.

During this virtual exchange journey, I hope to share amazing Spanish culture and broaden your perspective of the world a little bit more. I cannot wait for this exchange with you all!
