“Before completing this internship, I had never traveled outside of the United States. With the help given to me by Cultural Vistas, that dream became a reality and an experience that I will never forget. My stay in Germany provided me with not just a scientific learning experience that will advance my academic goals, but also with learning the different cultural elements that make Europe such a beautiful continent. My time spent in Europe truly enriched my perspective of cultural differences.”
