my journey

danny harrod is the most humble and encouraging professor i’ve ever had, and his classes gave me many tools to become a more loving, compassionate, and culturally aware person.

because of this program, i have had so many amazing experiences. i would suggest it to anyone wanting to serve overseas or stateside!
