The opportunity to become a part of this program was all thanks to serendipity. I was initially not planning to study abroad that Summer. Nevertheless, I knew that studying abroad was an investment and also knew of the potential growth I could have if I embarked on this journey.
Being in college you always hear that internships are key. This is what sparked my initial interest in the Intern program that Toucan Education Program (TEP) offers. Also, I wanted to explore a country/part of the world I hadn't yet. I went above and beyond to find fundings to go to this program and become an intern. This was one of the best financial and personal decisions I have made.
