My Janterm to the Dominican Republic was my first trip abroad. I was nervous to say the least, but after getting there, I quickly found that adventure was around every corner. I got to know my host family as they whisked me off for a weekend excursion to the other side of the island and I began exploring with my host brother. Seeing the beauty of the country, I quickly fell in love with it, and I knew I had to return. I got the opportunity the following summer through a GO Fellowship to teach English in the same areas we had previously traveled. Without Austin College, I would never have had these incredible, life-changing opportunities.
