Tell us about a favorite memory from a trip you have taken
On 2017 Spain trip, we spent our first night outside of the city at a small guest house in Sebúlcor. After a delicious home cooked meal, we spent a few hours around the table playing games, telling riddles, and hanging out. This was the night our group really came together.

Tough questions but Vietnam was a really incredible experience.

I sang in an a cappella group in college.

Lately, I’ve been learning to make my own kombucha and doing some rock climbing.

Just to be open to new things and be excited to experience something different from what you know.

Tell us why you are excited for this year’s trip!
I’m so excited to be going back to Spain! It’s an amazing country with a rich history and AMAZING FOOD. We work and stay with some amazing communities during the trip and I can’t wait to share this experience with a fresh batch of Global Works students!
