As I reflect back on the past month of my life while in Uberlandia, Brazil, I think to myself how lucky I am to have been chosen to be a part of something as special as the CIIP Team in Brazil. I never knew that being in a country where I do not know the language could be so challenging, fun and interesting. I tried to imagine what I would be doing before I came to Brazil, and man was I surprised at the events that happened. I never knew my life would be changed forever, and it’s a good feeling!
