It was almost the end of my second year of college and with summer around the corner, my best friend and I were exploring our options. I told him that I wanted to do something big and important, and that's when he showed me Cross-Cultural Solutions. We decided to travel to Peru and intern as medical assistants.
My first international trip wasn’t planned overnight. In fact, I spent several years thinking of exactly what it was that I wanted to experience when I left my comfort zone. And when I found Cross-Cultural Solutions, I was hooked. I knew that when I had the opportunity to finally cross the ocean, it would not be to do something only for myself. I wanted to give back as well.
