My experience in Peru through Students Shoulder to Shoulder was truly incredible. Our journey took us high into the Andean Mountains and into indigenous communities where we were able to work and connect with the locals of all ages. Though the language barrier made communication difficult, I felt I was able to bond with the locals on a deeper level through working, laughing, and simply spending time together. I am forever grateful for the experiences I shared and the connections I made. Even as my time in Peru grows further away, the memories are fresh in my mind as I continue to reflect and learn from my experience. As my journey through life and growth continues, my experience in Peru will forever remain near and dear to my heart.
What would you improve about this program?
I thoroughly enjoyed each aspect of the trip, and have no suggestions for big improvements. However, I do think packing additional cozy clothing like a warm sweatshirt and sweatpants would have been a great thing to have at night.
