What skills do you feel you've gained from going on a global program?

Based on the trip that I went on, most of my growth is personal. I've realized how sheltered I was, not that this is necessarily a horrendous thing, but understanding how people in different countries live is really important to me. I've also learned how the tourism industry affects other countries, ways to see more of the places I'm traveling to, and that people really aren't that different in other countries. Sure, there's a bit of a cultural difference, as there will be with almost all of the places you go, but people are people. All we have to do is talk to one another.

What is one of your favorite memories from your global program?

My favorite memory is going to the beach in the bay. We had such a long week of working that it felt nice to finally relax. Especially in a place that was so beautiful!

What advice would you give a student you is interested in a global program?

Just go for it! There are plenty of ways to raise money, you'll have plenty of support from us here at OGO, and you'll have the time of your life :)
