It's difficult to put my TBB experience into words, but I'll start off by saying it was (as cliche as it sounds) amazing. I felt that I was constantly being challenged to step out of my comfort zone and think in new ways, and as a result, I feel that I grew enormously over the course of the trip. After studying development, sustainable agriculture, and education in depth, I think I am far more prepared to play the role of an active, responsible, and compassionate global citizen. My parents and I agree that this was a very wise investment in my overall education. I can't imagine not having done this program.
