It was definitely worthwhile. I learned so many things about myself and the country. I gained a broadened view of life in another country and how some of my decisions we directly correlate back to my experience abroad. I will definitely travel to Australia again! - University of Cincinnati View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and what it's like to work in a professional environment. I also had lots of time to explore and learn about the culture. - North Carolina State University View Entire Review
My internship helped me understand the pros and cons working for a non-profit organization in a different environment.

I gained so much from my experience that this box will not allow me to write that much, and I would not even know where to begin. It developed my personal and profesional skills. - Kansas State University View Entire Review
