The program motivated me to strive for greater aspects in life. It helped me develop a stronger mindset and clearer path that would lead me to success in my near future as well as later aspirations in my life. Now that I am studying political science at the University of Alabama, having the courage to step outside of my world and go on that trip has led me to be the fearless leader I am today and continue to strive to be in my future endeavors.

The trip changed the direction of my life. I never had the opportunity to be exposed to such a different lifestyle, until I was granted the gift of being able to go on the trip.
