I have always been the kind of person to jump at an opportunity, no matter how last minute or random, but out of all of my spur of the moment decisions, I think that going on this trip was the best I have ever made.

I have witnessed and faced many agricultural aspects of Mexico and have gained a greater appreciation for this country that is so important to our economy in the U.S.

In just one week many closed-minded thoughts and misconceptions I had about Mexico were changed as I explored unfamiliar parts of the world and learn new lessons about the history, culture, and agriculture of Guanajuato, Mexico. I encourage all people to step out of their comfort zone and travel the world when given the opportunity to do so. It may be uncomfortable at times, but the sights and other first hand-experiences will leave a mark on your heart forever and fill your life with great stories to share.

Traveling to a country so economically and geographically close to the United States and learning so much about their agricultural makeup has helped me become a well-rounded student with a greater knowledge of global agriculture.
