Meet Joselle O’Brien


She is from Trinidad & Tobago, West Indies

She wanted to go to Morocco because “first and foremost, going to Morocco and experiencing the culture full throttle has always been at the top of my mother’s bucket list.  So, of course, I have grasped this opportunity with the help of my mother and other family members in hopes that she can experience Morocco vicariously through me! 🙂  Secondly, to me, this world is an open book, the pages of which are waiting to be explored.  The first chapter truly began with my leaving the comfort of my home to live and go to school here in Maine. Morocco is the next chapter waiting to be written!”

She’s most looking forward to “the explosion of Moroccan culture that awaits!  I am looking forward to completely (within reason) immersing myself as much as I can!”
