Studying abroad with Pepperdine helped me to appreciate how big the world really is. It enabled me to become a better neighbor and global citizen through coming to love and learn from people across the world within their own cultures and communities.

Studying abroad taught me to be independent and confident in my decision-making and capabilities. The friends and mentors I found abroad continue to encourage me to pursue a purposeful life.

Argentina is a fantastic location to learn and teach. What a privilege to be given the opportunity to rejuvenate pedagogy through incorporation of Argentine EFT experiences and service-learning, all shared with undergraduate students, immersed in a new language and culture.
