Welcome to Hamburg! 

Last weekend, the fellows of this year’s TTT project have finally arrived in Hamburg. The group consists of 52 students from Ghana, the US and Germany, which offers the fellows a great opportunity to get to know and connect with people from other parts of the world. Throughout the upcoming four weeks, the Universität Hamburg is hosting the Study Camp, which includes many fun and interesting activities for the students. 

The program’s kick-off was the Welcome Event, which took place last Tuesday. The project coordinators Anja Wilken and Telse Iwers warmly welcomed the TTT Fellows, followed by moving speeches by the Consul General of the US Consulate in Hamburg, the Dean of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dean Fouad Abd-El-Khalick as well as the former Dean of the Faculty for Educational Studies of the University of Education Winneba, Prof. Samuel Kweku Hayford. 

After this official part the students „broke the ice“ by various fun getting-to-know exercises organized by the student assistant Cordelia, inducing vivid conversations among the students. Those were only briefly interrupted by the delicious chili served for dinner. After about three hours of games, chats and refreshments, the guests slowly started to make their way home to get some rest before the start of their first day at school on Wednesday. 

In the name of the entire TTT coordination team, I would like to thank everyone for making this a wonderful opening event of the Study Camp Hamburg. We are very much looking forward to the coming weeks with you!
