My trip to Cuba was plagued with medical issues and not knowing what was going on with my body. In Cuba, cell service is rare, so I couldn't Google my symptoms at the drop of a hat like at home or call my mom to get soothing pep talks. I had to rely on the people around me, the community of students and professionals, as well as my own wits. That experience was tough. Through my challenges I was strengthened, and I learned that I can overcome really tough obstacles- even when I'm scared. I loved it. I would do it again tomorrow if I could.
