Hello readers! I really appreciate everyone taking the time to read the story of my adventure to South Africa. I will be spending ten full days in the country with most of the time being spent in Johannesburg, with a short excursion at the end to Capetown. I am incredibly excited for the opportunity the Kelley School of Business has provided us to be about to work with small business owners from (literally) across the globe. My excitement nearly cannot be contained; South Africa has been a “bucket list” country since college. During undergrad my long-time friend and roommate Amos was a native of Capetown and always bragged on the countries beauty. I am excited upon my return to be able to speak in detail with him about the country once I have my own experiences.
A bit of backstory about me and what led me on this little trip. My name is Ryan Cutter and I am a 24-year-old, second-year Evening MBA student at the Kelley School of Business, with a concentration in marketing and entrepreneurship. I attend classes at night, while working full-time at Rolls-Royce Aerospace in downtown Indianapolis. When I am not in classes, studying or at the office I am an avid runner, reader, writer and photographer. While it may be difficult for me to train while in south Africa, I hope there will be some opportunities for photos I can send back to you guys!
