Pursuing a B.A. Nonprofit Management - University of Northern Iowa
My first international experience was a mission trip to Haiti in 2012. Since then, I have traveled all over Europe through UNI's Camp Adventure program, while spending the majority of my time living and working in Germany. I was also blessed to go to South Africa to present about Camp Adventure at the LARASA (Leisure and Recreation Association of South Africa) Conference in September of 2013.
WHY DO YOU ENJOY WORKING WITH INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS?
I love working with international students because you can really see each of them grow during their time here. I love their fresh perspectives on life and learning about their home cultures. Also, making international friends is what allows me to "travel" without having to pay for a plane ticket. ;) I learn so much because of these students! They bring joy and laughter to my life each and every day.
