Cam’s semester in India gave her the confidence she needed to seek out the things she wishes to learn from the world around her. “With proper planning and determination, I was able to place myself exactly where I wanted to be. Through this realization of personal maturity, I believe I have come closer to becoming a citizen of the world.”
