Student Reflections

“I am a strong proponent of cultural literacy, and I think the only way to achieve that is by traveling and experiencing other cultures firsthand. For this reason, I value traveling and meeting new people.”

“The free time in the afternoons after work was the perfect time to walk around and explore Quito (which is huge and never has a shortage of options to explore). The weekend trips were also phenomenal. They made the trip one of the best experiences (if not the best) of my life. Overall, I really valued that through it all, I grew closer to six other Vanderbilt students and two amazing site leaders.”
