 Reflection:

 

“This was the most amazing class I have ever taken. I cannot believe the amount of things that I learned. The experience was truly once in a lifetime and I am so grateful for the things I was able to see and do. Not only did I learn a lot about culture and nursing, but I was also able to strengthen my testimony and learn a lot about myself. The things that I learned in Ecuador will stay with me for the rest of my life”
