Susan Anstine (formerly Susan Mary Smith) served with CUSO in Sunyani, Ghana from 1965-67 as a French teacher. Susan recalls some of the difficulties of her time in Ghana - the bugs and homesickness - but also the rewarding relationships with her students and other volunteers. Susan later became a Pyschiatric social worker, but has continued to be involved in development projects like the Rabuor Village Project in Kenya.

Susan spoke with Mark Manns, a CUSO-VSO volunteer, at the 50th Anniversary event at UBC on December 4, 2010.
