“I participated on Thinking Beyond Border’s Asia Gap Semester program. From the most empowering leaders, to the most amazing experiences, to learning and broadening my perspective of the world, I have nothing but absolutely incredible things to say about this program. I learned how to think more critically about everything in my life, and I formed relationships that will last forever. If you are thinking of participating in a Thinking Beyond Borders program, you definitely should, it will change your life for the better in so many ways.”

“It’s difficult to put my TBB experience into words, but I’ll start off by saying it was (as cliche as it sounds) amazing. I felt that I was constantly being challenged to step out of my comfort zone and think in new ways, and as a result, I feel that I grew enormously over the course of the trip. After studying development, sustainable agriculture, and education in depth, I think I am far more prepared to play the role of an active, responsible, and compassionate global citizen. My parents and I agree that this was a very wise investment in my overall education. I can’t imagine not having done this program.”
