Program Reviews:
Kezia Krystal Powell, Spring 2018 Participant
It is a valuable experience. You learn and grow as an individual and gain another perspective of living. I wish it was longer!

Kezia Krystal Powell, Spring 2018 Participant
Go out. Make friends. Find an interest and attend the events. You'll be fine!

I made a lot of new friends, experienced new cultures, and learned to adapt in new, exciting, exhausting situations. I learned that I can do so much more than I think I can.
