Countries visited: 14
Favorite Destination: Tanzania and Amsterdam
Favorite thing about working in SA: I had two incredible study abroad experiences and learned so much beyond the classroom. To push yourself beyond limits, explore new cultures and places, and see yourself in a new way. I love the excitement in other students when they start to imagine all of the things that their own study abroad experiences can hold.
