"My trip to South Africa was such an eye-opening experience. We witnessed unimaginable poverty, social and racial conflict, and political instability firsthand. I was taken far out of my comfort level, my opinions and views were challenged, and at times I felt overwhelmed, but as a result I can now look at global issues through a more critical, informed lens. This project challenged me to confront myself, and I now have a better understanding of how blessed and easy my life has been." -Rachel Matthews FCRH '09
