"Learning about the Incas through books does not compare to actually being in the Land of the Incas. I touched Incan walls and walked Incan paths. This was definitely an experience of a lifetime."
"I learned that I actually love learning about indigenous peoples in Latin America. This program will influence my career plans because I will have experience in being in a developing country in Latin America -- and that's what I want to work with in the future (international development)."
