 Chloe Deshusses (Oberlin College '18), a CIEE Ghana Fall 2016 participant, writes about her time on the University of Ghana Swimming Team and the friendship that she has formed with her team members.


Me with some of the members of the Legon Sharks


After three years away from swimming, I decided my semester in Ghana was my time to get back to the pool. However, being a Legon Shark quickly became more than just a swim team - the swim team is a supportive, welcoming group, and they are my closest friends in Ghana.


We cheer each other on in competitions, often go to the night market for fruits and kebab after evening training, and on our team captain's birthday, we threw him into the pool.

The team has its sights set on competing at the West African University Games, so stay tuned for more!
