Imelda from South Africa
This journey has been so enriching and has allowed me to grow and develop into my own person. It has made me feel stronger and wiser and for the first time I feel like I can do anything and be anyone I want. This is such a remarkable program that broadens your horizons and opens your mind. It encourages you to be accepting and look at things in a new way. On this journey, I have found where I truly belong, I have found my home.
Jessica from Brazil
Something I love about this experience is that it has given me the opportunity to meet people from a lot of different countries, some of which I was completely ignorant of their existence. You make yourself aware that there are many different realities in the world, and that despite of where everybody comes from, we are all very alike in a lot of ways. I have also been able to develop what I think will be life-lasting friendships.
Gloria from Mexico
This experience has made me get rid of fears and paradigms that I once had. It has also helped me to change the way I see things that I once thought I couldn’t do. Now, I feel like I can achieve whatever goal I set. I also feel like I can go to any city and every country that I want, and live wherever I feel like it. I feel like a citizen of the world. I can say that, in general, a better version of myself is being formed, because this has completely nurtured the way I think, see, and do things.
