“My time in the Moroccan Sahara was the most peaceful experience to date. Being in the desert allowed me to reflect on the journey that I was taking in Morocco. Not knowing what was next, it was foolish to make predictions. I had no concept of time; all I was sure about was that my presence was there in the desert and that was all that I needed to treasure.”
Alvin Young spent a term at the IES (Institute for the International Education of Students) Center in Rabat and Mohammed V University, studying Arabic and French languages and history, politics, and economy of Morocco and North Africa.
