“My experiences in this program were nothing short of a life adventure which did so much to teach me about myself as well as the world. I had the opportunity to sharpen my skills, broaden my perspective, and even expand my knowledge. In addition, I gained new friendships and memories along the way. I would highly recommend this once in a lifetime opportunity to anyone.”
