Through InterExchange, I was given the opportunity to live in Porto Sant'Elpidio, Italy for 4 weeks, while teaching English at two different locations of You Can Camp (one in Recananti and one in Macerata). Through this experience, I was able to really experience the culture of the people living there, build relationships with the children at the camps, and meet lots of peers from all over the world who were also working alongside me. The camp staff who was from Italy were so friendly and accommodating and really made us feel at home. I made so many wonderful friends on this trip, and I was also able to travel to different areas around Italy on weekends too, which was absolutely phenomenal. This program really helped me grow as a person, increased my cooperation and teamwork skills, and gave me an experience that I will remember for a lifetime.
