I missed the fjord, my roommates and basically everything about RCN, but I think I am sort of used to live in a city now.

Hannah Mulbah (RCN ’18- present)

For Hannah Mulbah (Liberia), joining UWCRCN is not merely a matter of getting a quality high school education. It is about breaking free from the negative stereotyping that she grew up with due to her disability.
