My final thought on Student Leadership University is that it was amazing. If you're a leader but not really growing as much as you'd hope I recommend this program.

Our first adventure was a journey up the gorgeous Xunantunich ruins and after that we walked around the outside of a 15 acre jungle that was Mr. B's farm. The Xunantunich ruins were so indescribable. Once you arrive you're at the … Continue reading Belize Day 7: Adventure Time

It's 9:37 a.m. and we just got back from Pop's, our morning spot for breakfast. The realization hit that this … Continue reading Belize Day 6: Our Goodbye is not a Goodbye.
