DIG DEEPER

This January term, I went with a group of about 23 students to study the people, plants, and animals of Thailand. We were able to pet tigers, ride and train elephants, and help out the people of the hill tribes. Thailand was such a great country; it's beautiful and all of the people were so amazing.

Since I'm an art major, I was able to do art projects with kids in the Akha Youth Hostel and in Thapo Village. It was amazing to see how enthusiastic they were about coloring and creating. This trip was life changing and I'm still so excited about my experiences this J Term!
