An opportunity to grow 

“My experience in Rwanda was very powerful. The January trip rounded out my liberal arts education at Wheaton. Taking a “Beyond the West” course could be treated as just a requirement, but Wheaton allows students many hands-on opportunities to act as engaged global citizens. I feel that Wheaton has continually provided me with the opportunity to step forward and grow  and to see the world from new perspectives.I hope to work in the medical field while focusing mainly on public health and this opportunity opened my eyes to the ways that I can hopefully one day make a positive impact. After visiting Agahozo Shalom Youth Village I have decided that I want to work with children, particularly at risk youth.”
