Meshijah Triplett: University of West Georgia, London and Paris 2014

The Good:  “I had the opportunity to travel to England and France. I noticed that there were so many people of different cultures and backgrounds that lived in London. Ironically enough, I believe I saw more interracial couples in Europe than I did back home in America.”


The Bad: 
“However, during our trip from Paris to London, we had to pass through border control where we were interrogated and continuously questioned as to why we were headed back to England. Now I’m not sure if this was standard protocol to be rude and overbearing or if it was indeed the color of my skin, but it left me feeling very uncomfortable and missing America, where I knew I was welcomed.” (Photo: Courtesy of Meshijah Triplett)
