I always knew that I wanted to travel abroad in college. However, my experience at USF, a social justice oriented liberal arts college, influenced my perspective on what a meaningful abroad experience looks like.
I chose to participate in FSD’s program because I was confident in having genuine cross-cultural interactions and a relevant educational experience.
FSD offers holistic international internship programs with arranged homestays, exposure to cultural activities and unique professional development opportunities with local grassroots organizations.
As an environmental studies major, FSD’s internship in sustainable development seemed like a natural fit. I was excited to apply my background in environmental studies to better understand sustainable initiatives in community development abroad.
I was always keen on traveling abroad to Asia given my own cultural roots, which influenced my decision participate in FSD’s program in India.
