Exciting, Unique & Innovative opportunity!

As an EdOdyssey alumni of the Peru Study Abroad program, and a current summer intern with the small company, I am extremely excited about the launch of the new virtual study abroad program. Having studied at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú in Lima, I can attest to the high level of academics and passionate professors at the university. Additionally, the EdOdyssey Peru team is made up of some of the nicest people who deeply care about the students they support. Fluent in Spanish and English, the Peruvian team will be able to connect with students in English without trouble, creating a positive and smooth learning environment. Finally, I am particularly excited about the weekly cultural module of this program. Over the past few months I have witnessed the virtual programs come to life and take form. The cultural modules are great because they provide students with important context about Peruvian culture, history, and society. Presented in a relaxed and fun educational setting, the information will easily engage students who may have no prior knowledge about Peru. I truly believe that at the end of this course, students will have a very solid base understanding of key aspects of Peruvian society. Engagement with other cultures is an incredible way for students to broaden their global understanding and to put aspects of their daily life in the U.S. into a broader perspective. Hopefully this program will enable many students to do just that!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
We may not be able to travel at this time, but exciting new virtual programs such as this are great ways to continue to engage with the world without leaving your house! Take a chance on Virtual Study Abroad. There is always more to learn and EdOdyssey has created an extremely intentional program that continues to hold up their core values. EdOdyssey always says that "Travel changes people and people change the world". This phrase still holds true, but in a more abstract way. Via virtual platforms students are able to travel to a different country, engage with locals, and learn in-depth about new cultures. It's not the same as real travel, I'll give you that. But it is definitely worth a try! Maybe this course will be what leads you to change the world!
