Tell us about your International Experience trip. Where did you go? What was your favorite experience?

I went to Uruguay for my International Experience and had the time of my life. The trip, led by Lorenzo Caliendo, gave me amazing insights into how Uruguay approaches the concept of Business & Society. We not only met with business leaders across the country, but got to experience all the culture Uruguay had to offer. And the best part: I got to reconnect with my Uruguayan family after many years of not seeing them. (And special shout out to the Dulce de Leche!)
