"As an Anthropology major, I have over and over again been told of the necessity for crossing cultural boundaries towards a greater understanding of and appreciation for diversity. Looking back at my time in Venezuela, and other experiences abroad, I feel incredibly privileged to have had the opportunity to supplement my classroom learning with time immersed in culture so different than my own. It is important to constantly assess the way that we, as academics, approach the study of other cultures. Those other cultures are just as real as our own, and once ours interacts with those, it becomes its own entity of sorts. The fact that I was able to be a part of this cultural entanglement is coming that I'm very proud of."
