The element of the program that I found most rewarding was the meetings we had with the many different incredible women leaders of India. We had interactions with such a great variety of people- from social workers to business women to religious leaders to a Princess. It was a very well rounded and eye opening experience.

I learned that when you're abroad, especially in a less developed country, you must be patient and flexible. Things will always take longer/won't go exactly as planned and you just have to be okay with that. Also, don't come into the trip with expectations-- they will be way different than the reality that you experience and it would be a shame if you let them ruin the trip.

As a non-traditional student, I had no idea what to expect. We saw so many aspects of India; we were exposed to a wide range of religious experience, a few tourist sites, food, and Indian cultural experiences. I felt like I was able to capture a glimpse of a country that I would very much like to go back to. This program was amazing and exceeded my expectations!
