MIJ Student Experiences Life in Peru
Baylor MIJ graduate student Meredith Millard spent the summer in Huancayo, Junin, Peru, working for Blue Sparrow, a nonprofit organization that explores the use of information and communication technologies for social development.
Millard said she received innumerable lessons about the difficulties in cross-cultural communication. She is proud of how much she learned and how much her communication style has changed as a result.
"I will look back on this summer as the best of my life and as an incredible learning experience," she said. "I cannot wait to return to Huancayo and continue my work with Blue Sparrow and my awe-inspiring students."
