Lindsay Borman

Organization: International Sustainable Development Studies Institute
Dates: January 4, 2018 to June 12, 2018

In Lindsay's own words:

How I contributed: By working hard at understanding holistic and complex relationships between the state, people, culture, and the biosphere.

What I felt most challenged by: Culture shock. Adjusting to language and societal norms.

What I enjoyed most:  The food and the joy of hard work paying off in language studies. Also, personal connections made with home stays.

Would I recommend this experience:  Absolutely. Because I learned more in 4 months there than I have in years of conventional school. It was extremely challenging and difficult, and extremely rewarding.
