“Words on paper cannot explain in the least how my experiences in Ecuador changed me spiritually and professionally! Lately, I have been so busy with school and not giving much time to my boyfriend, friends, family or to myself. Since the mission trip, I have realized that life is too short to only focus on one thing. I want to reconnect with old friends, give more love to family, friends, and even strangers. I want to laugh every day. More importantly, It has opened a part of me that has been hidden away for the past 8 years. I sense that I have changed into a better person since I have been back from Ecuador and this trip had made me more confident that helping in third world countries through medical missions is what I want to do as part of my pharmacy career.”
