Today was the very first day of our women and leadership courses. We all did a lot of different ice breakers to get to know each other's names and to get to know a little about each other. We all had lots of fun. Actually we were so loud while conversing that our teacher, Kisa, had to close the door to not disturb the other people in the same building.
After the morning class we all went to eat lunch, but we were kinda late so there were no more buns left for the burgers. I didn't mind because I don't eat meat there fore I wouldn't have a burger.
In the afternoon session we had a guest speaker called Gail Cohee. We talked mostly about how woman were stereotyped and how in our own schools it happens as well.
After class we head over to town with a group. We walked by the Rhode Island school of Design. We also found out were the bus station was, for emergencies.
Later today we had activities with people from the same building that we are staying at. We did an activity where we all got to choose a type of leader that we think we are most like. Within our groups of common leaders we discussed why we chose it and the things we didn't like about the other types of leaders.
Know we finally got free time, but we have to use it to do our first homework assignment.
I'm still having trouble getting use to the weather here, but other than that I having a great time.
