Members of the African Student Association were out today (3-17-12) raising money for 'Kicks for Africa' and try to dispel stereotypes people may have about Africa.

Members were looking to raise awareness about Africa and what life is really like there as well as collect money for Kicks for Africa

"We're just trying to tweak people's mind or just turn people's mind around and really showing them how Africa really is. So we are just representing our continent to everybody at Florida State University," says Linda Tandoh, an FSU Student.

Tandoh says there are a lot of misconceptions about how people live in Africa and what life is really like there. She says the African Student Association is putting on a presentation next month to raise awareness.
