I gained a lot of maturity in planning trips and booking flights and navigating huge metropolitan cities by myself. I had to adapt and learn new cultures/customs/languages in each place I visited. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned how to truly be independent for the first time and to be open minded towards befriending different types of people. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

Past Review Chile: Bacan!
It was absolutely worthwhile - I will be working in the Latin American division of a company in Denver, Colorado starting this fall. I plan to incorporate my interests in Latin American, Spanish, and travel into my career. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
