If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program?
This semester abroad in the Yucatan changed the course of my life in a deep and pivotal way. The friends I made and the sights I saw during these (far too brief) six months are constantly in my mind, and I'm still processing and understanding the Yucatan. Studying abroad with Millsaps gave me a serious case of the travel bug, and I'll be returning to Mexico for many years to come. This trip abroad taught me more than Spanish and Yuctec history- it taught me about myself and who I really am. This trip profoundly changed what I value, what I prioritize, and changed my career path from journalist to public school teacher.
