For those of you that have ever traveled abroad, you know how expensive it can be! Our Faves this week are getting on planes and not just for vacation…London to learn Shakespeare, Guatemala to build homes for the less fortunate and student teaching in Thailand. What experiences these students are signing up for and we want to help!
Third year English major at Webster University, Mackenzie, is heading to London in the fall. As a serious English major, this trip is so important to her because she has the opportunity to be immersed in the culture of some of the most famous authors in the world (Shakespeare, Dickens, Autsten…just to name a few!). To be or not to be…we think TO BE!
Non-profit organization, American Friends for TECHO, sends youth volunteers abroad to assist families in poverty. Their next big trip? A group of students are heading to Guatemala to build transitional homes for families in extreme poverty. Going abroad AND helping another community, sign us up for this organization!
Heather is a senior at Mount Vernon Nazarene University, majoring in early childhood education. Since she can remember her dream has been to learn different cultures and their teaching beliefs. Guess what?!? Her dream has come true and she will be heading to Thailand to complete her student teaching in the fall. What a way to finish out your degree, Heather!
