"To say that my experience in Mexico this summer was "life changing" would be an understatement. I went into this internship hoping to change the lives of those in need, but during that time I had no idea how much of a profound impact the experience and the people would have on me. The memories and friendships I made on this trip are the kind that you hold onto for a lifetime in your heart, and that change who you are and who you want to become. I went to change a life, and my life was changed in the process." - Andrew, Mexico Summer Intern
