Jamie Rose Southerland, Winter Break 2019 Participant
The whole program just exposes you to different cultures, people, and ways of thinking. It broadens your capacity to empathize with people who have different experiences than you.

Jamie Rose Southerland, Winter Break 2019 Participant
The most rewarding part of the experience was hearing stories from migrants and refugees. It was really cool to be able to share experiences and connect with one another.
