Private: European Odyssey 2018
It has been six years this month since I attended my People to People International Travel Program. I did the European Odyssey trip with a local Northern California delegation.
I was nervous, I was traveling with all these people I didn’t know and without my family for the first time. Though, by the end of the trip I didn’t want to return home. I had such a life altering experience and that trip will always hold a very special place in my heart, as will the people. I learned so much about myself and who I can be, because of People to People.
Going off to college I wasn’t as scared about not knowing anyone because I figured, I traveled around the world with strangers and we became great friends. People to People also taught me confidence and how one person, one moment, one adventure can change your life, so never let anything pass you by. I still talk to a great number of the students I traveled with, all this time later. I am also a writer and those adventures and experiences that I took from People to People have landed themselves in my stories time and time again. If you have a chance to go on one of these programs, TAKE IT. I Promise it will change your life
