Rebecca Sauer in Nicaragua

An excerpt from “Going Abroad to Find a Way Home“:

“Usually this type of program is based around natural science. USFQ provides a whole other way of doing fieldwork around the people aspect of things, which is a really important part of sustainability and environmental problems. Understanding challenges that are being faced in other parts of the world is really powerful.”

“I realized in Ecuador that I’ve gotten very caught up in the routine and stressors of everyday life. The program reminded me why I love environmental science so much, the impact that I want to have on the world, and the opportunities that are out there for me to pursue a career in this field.”
