The most rewarding part of this trip was the cultural immersion that occurs through out. After returning home, I wanted to go back. This trip gave me the travel bug.
I loved that we got to do volunteer work that applies to our major allowing me to gain a lot of experience I can use for my future career choice.
My favorite part of this program was having the opportunity to receive hands-on experiences like working with the New Zealand Breakers and working the ASB tournament.
