The Erries are grateful to have been part of this unforgettable, sublime, confounding experience.
From 29 September to 10 October 2022, three Erries, Ina Mathebula, De La Rey Hattingh and Pieter Landman, made their way to America for an educational tour. This particular tour's unique nature lies firstly within the tour group: a group of like-minded academic achievers from across South Africa who get to interact, network and learn together, often forcing new and lasting friendships. The Erries are grateful to have been part of this unforgettable, sublime, confounding experience. Meeting these learners was amazing, and every second spent with them was worthwhile.
The tour offers students the opportunity to further their quest in developing their skills and fulfilling their potential through attending private, thought-provoking lectures based on topical subjects, hosted by thought-leaders at world renowned universities namely Harvard, MIT, Yale and Princeton University. The learners also got time to explore the cities New York, Boston and Washington DC which was truly astonishing, being exposed to new foods, environments and people. It wasn't just tours and lectures, the learners had their fair share of fun times. “Going to America was truly a blessing on its own and I will forever be grateful for my parents for making it happen. America truly opened my eyes in knowing how much more there is to this world,” said Ina Matebuhla.
