Gisely Colón López, Brooklyn CollegeLearning about the Caribbean through a firsthand experience opened my eyes to the many global factors affecting us in the United States and abroad. Every day was a new adventure and even during the toughest days, when we were digging for soil samples and traveling in remote areas until we were all covered in dirt from the unpaved roads, we were always having fun while learning. Studying abroad solidified my interest in continuing to study cultures, youth and history of the Caribbean and Latin America.
