DIG DEEPER

Many people think of beaches, sea shells, and Bob Marley but Jamaica is so much more than that. I got the opportunity to explore the rural communities of this beautiful country. The lives I got to change and the people who changed me throughout my journey were inspirational. I got to teach children how to brush their teeth in a Primary school. I was given a family with eight children for a month and was asked to make a difference. I did. The hands-on experience opened my eyes. It taught me more than a textbook ever could. This was a trip only Hartwick College could offer to a nursing student.
