Travelling abroad alone is a learning experience you share with yourself. You learn who you are, who you are not, and who you want to be. Among the many things I learned about myself during this trip is that I am capable of so much more than I give myself credit for.

Prior to my involvement with the GREEN program, I was consumed by the water drought occurring in California. The NASA data that reported alarmingly high rates of world aquifer depletion, as well as the effects of over-consumption, forced me to adopt a low-water footprint, vegan diet. Not only did I change physically, mentally, I... - Florida State University View Entire Review
