"The country was
AMAZING and the school
was even better than
expected.  Everybody was
super nice and very
accommodating. My
teacher was great and my
Spanish improved so much
more than I expected!
"The best part of the experience was
getting to spend time daily with
patients.  I felt that I had a plethora of
volunteering in the hospital.
