Zoe Sheppard ’16 Offers Compelling Student Discussion on her Experiences in Ghana

Fourth academics taking “Voices of the African Diaspora” were treated to an intriguing classroom visit last week from alumna Zoe Sheppard '16, who discussed her experience in a program in Ghana earlier this year. A student at St. John's University in Queens, NY, Zoe presented takeaways from her service trip at Trashy Bags, a social enterprise based in Accra that makes recycled eco-friendly bags and gifts from plastic trash. She also shared pictures of her visit to the Cape Coast Castle, a 1642 European-built fortress, which students in the class will learn about later in the semester. Seniors asked many questions and were thrilled to host her. It is always wonderful to have alumnae visit, and even more special when they engage with, and give back to, the students at Stone Ridge. Thank you again for your visit, Zoe!
