A student studying abroad with KEI Abroad in Guayaquil, Ecuador
January 21, 2017 Eye Opener
Little things can go a long way, and patience is a virtue - Worcester State University View Entire Review
It was worthwhile, but I would do an internship, instead, if I had to do it all over again. I learned a lot about my independence and ability to accomplish things on my own and about how I handle potentially dangerous or ambiguous situations. - Berea College View Entire Review
I had thought that I wanted to live in Guayaquil for at least some of my life and this trip just confirmed for me that the positive aspects of the city outweigh the negative aspects. Having an internship there gave me a foot in the door if I want a job with them in the future. - Providence College View Entire Review
I gained clinical experience, life long friends, and a better understanding of the Spanish language. - Lincoln University View Entire Review
I learned much from my experience abroad, from cultural diversity to new languages and foods. The program was extremely beneficial to me as a person and was definitely worthwhile. - Georgia Gwinnett College View Entire Review
