How has your gap experience influenced/contributed to your academic and professional goals?
TBB made me realize that I wanted to continue my travels and remain an engaged global citizen. Since my time with TBB, I’ve lived, worked, studied, and volunteered in more than 95 countries. I even served as a Peace Corps Volunteer teaching English in Madagascar.
