“By applying to this program [you’ll make] huge leap for your future. [You will] chose to dive into a completely new world with new people in a new place. It’ll change you. You’re going to feel all of the emotions. Expand your mind about topics and get a hands-on experience for what really matters in the world. You’re going to love the people you meet. You’ll never want to leave the place you pick. This [will be] an opportunity you earned and should be proud of [if you get] chosen. Here’s some advice: ask questions. Get to know the others on your trip. Eat something weird. Do something everyday that scares you. Think and reflect on your days on this trip because you’ll never have this same experience again. You’re going to do great things, kid.”
