  • "I wanted to acquire a new “cultural lens” that I could use in my future role as a student and as a  practitioner. In the Bay Area, the population that OTs will encounter is incredibly diverse."
  • "The experience is priceless – and an opportunity that might not come up again in your lifetime, especially while you have the support of a professor and fellow students."
  • "I didn’t know any of the people when I went.….Now, I have 15 new friends within a different health field that I still keep in touch with."
