By (Economics., SUNY - College at Geneseo) for

SUNY Geneseo: Traveling - Mediterranean Roots Summer Program

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
I gained a deeper understanding of the immense size of the earth and the large role that each person can play in effect the future of the earth. No matter how small or insignificant a person may feel, it is impossible to not have a direct effect on the world and the people around you who reciprocally effect the people around them until everyone in the world is connected.
