"I traveled with the International Affairs Scholars on a ten-day short-term study abroad to Bolivia. It was a trip filled with amazing experiences. We saw a variety of different places including La Paz, Cochabamba, and Santa Cruz. Each place was really unique, and it was interesting to see the variety within such a small country. I was able to speak Spanish a lot while I was there and it really encouraged me to keep pursuing language study beyond the basic requirements. The experience made me realize how much is out in the world to see and learn. I want to keep traveling and see as much as I can. The people and the cultural experiences were amazing. Globalization is a big part of today's society so it is more important than ever to understand multiple cultures."
