“From my experience abroad, I gained a whole new level of confidence in myself. I went outside of my comfort zone to travel alone to a new country in order to help others. I gained a further appreciation for other cultures, and a knowledge that other parts of the world are extremely different and yet similar at the same time. I learned of my love to volunteer, and a deeper passion for traveling.”
