My favorite part of the program was participating in Picture Berlin. This was an all day art walk which was the best possible introduction to the art scene, culture, and history in Berlin. It was really exciting to meet other people working in the same field I am hoping to become a part of.

Keeping a sketchbook from the entire trip was very rewarding, because when I look back on it I will know ever last detail of what we encountered good and bad. Also I found it rewarding to have some free time to explore things that we are interested that were not on the schedule of things to do.

I made memories that will last me a lifetime. It was incredible to be immersed in such different cultures and see not only their history from their point of view but to actually feel like I was a part of it.
