I also learned to provide for myself, and if I had a problem I could not just go home, I had to solve it on my own with my best judgement.

Recipients will select from a variety of mediums to share their story while abroad, in addition to submitting a photo testimonial.

Recipients will share their story of learning and exploration while abroad with a photo gallery and their choice of travel vlog, blogging, or an Instagram takeover.
