Rustic Pathways Global Issues Design Challenge

This program was a great experience. I would love to travel on a Rustic Pathways trip abroad, however due to my other commitments I am unable to block out the time to do so. I found that the GIDC program was a great substitute and I still learned tons of new information about different parts of the world from within my home! I was able to learn about different remote areas and how they need assistance, while also building my own person skills throughout all of the group work that we did. Recommend!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
I suggest to stay engaged with the guest speakers!

Fiji Online

I was hoping that other students could participate more, however the teachers were very supportive. I loved how supportive and fun the Fiji team were. The activities were fun and faculty has shown great support in guiding me through the process of creating my prototype. I really enjoyed learning the Fijian culture and language, it has inspired me to go to Fiji and do physical improvements rather than digital ones. Overall because I celebrate New Years the timing was a little bit uneasy for me, but it was still very engaging and I do not regret doing it at all.

What was your funniest moment?
Fijian team showing how they celebrate New Years. It was really funny to see how the woman was taken aback when he put flour on her face, showing us traditional way of celebrating the Fijian New Year.
