I was fortunate enough to participate in the ESI Program in Kassel, Germany during the summer of 2018. During this time, I resided with a host family that I grew and remain close with. Our classes ranged in subject matter from EU Trade and Development Policy to Gender Inequality in Latin America. The program also included an excursion to Brussels where we visited EU Parliament, the EU Commission, Business Europe, and more. We also went on fun excursions to Berlin and areas around Kassel. Everyone involved with the trip was lovely and formed bonds that will last a lifetime. This experience enriched me both professionally and personally. It is an experience that it will always cherish.
