Johnette and Christa, both Spelman alumna, are the original Black Women Abroad of this organization, who took their convictions and turned them into action; but never alone! They have an amazing team of regulars and part-time volunteers who are committed to helping others.
As Black Women Abroad that started our wunderlust as students in our formative and university years, the opportunity to open our minds at that age was life changing. Thanks to generous donors we had that chance and now we want to pay it forward. We continue to try to embody Spelman's motto, A Choice To Change the World through International Education, Culture, and Development.
Our aim is to remove the financial barriers to studying abroad by providing scholarships. Every year, semester, or summer, some Spelman student misses the option to study abroad; we want to fill that need.
