"When I was first applying for CSUIP my first choice was Ghana, I initially doubted myself and questioned the amount of time I had to be away from home. It was a difficult decision at first, but looking back to it now it was one of the best decisions I’ve come to make for myself" - Emely Hernandez (Ghana, Africa (2016-2017))

"I encourage everyone who has taken the time to seek information and guidance on this program to not allow any doubt you may have to over come you because this experience is truly one in a lifetime. Coming from someone who has taken the path in real life and had the exact same questions and insecurities you all have now about pursing the program, I had them as well! Being here now I have realized that it was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life" -Alisha byrd (Jaen, Spain (2016-2017))

Sri Lenka, Greece, England, China, Somalia, Canada, Australia, the list goes on" -Alee Gonzalez (Uppsala, Sweden (2016-2017))
