Choosing Friends

Nakaridja says she is very selective in choosing her friends. How does she do that? Intuition, she claims.

Cultural Shock

Typically, social behaviours may confuse or surprise international students. For example, you may find people appear cold, distant or always in a hurry

One of Nakaridja’s cultural shocks in Ghana, she shares with us is extravagant funeral parties. “I have observed Ghanaians organize big funeral parties and I find it strange. And everyone wears red and black”. She bemoans “Ghana is also too expensive to live compared to Cote d’Ivoire,”
