In my junior year (Fall 2015), I studied abroad in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Through the Service Learning aspect of the program, I came to work with a local non-profit known as Grandma Cares Partnership Program. While teaching English and different sports at local government schools and organizing a donation drive for underprivileged Thai children, my independence grew. I truly emerged myself in Thai Culture. Currently, I am taking the course “Music of South Asia” in the Asian Studies department. It has allowed me to reflect my experiences from Thailand while at St. Lawrence!
