I absolutely loved this trip. I had never been without my parents for more than a week, nevertheless traveled out of the country alone. Broadreach did an excellent job of communicating with my parents and I about my safety on the trip as well as flying there and back. The information I learned on this experience has helped grown me as a veterinary student. I confirmed my passion for veterinary medicine and would highly recommend this program for any student interested in pursuing a career involving animals. Highly skilled instructors are with the group constantly, so there is no shortage of learning. Plus, the trip included tourist activities such as rafting and repelling (things I was nervous about doing, but again ended up being safe and fun).
