Student Testimonial

"I served as a HIV & Aids educator for 27 months of service in Kachikau, Botswana. I created a life skills program and taught 40+ young adults to teach life skills to younger generations. We held summer camps and were able to teach over 600 students from surrounding schools everything from HIV education to how to study for a test. My experience changed me forever and I would go back & do it again in a heartbeat." Kara O'Shaughnessy (BA, English, 2006)
