“The trip questioned so many aspects of my life from classroom learning to the cultural immersion and interaction. The hands-on experience gained from this trip was so rare and even once in a lifetime. I mean, how many people can say they assisted in a leaf monkey examination? This trip has opened my perspective to different views of animal welfare and the incredible work and love locals have! The desire for change and compassion in Bali was palpable. I can only hope to share these experiences with others at home and keep my desire to evoke change moving in the right direction.” Katherine, college alumna
