Stories from the Field
Interview with Student Alum Michaela R.
April 11, 2016
What drew you to that particular NGSE trip?
I have always wanted to go on an NGSE. I got a scholarship from my school to study abroad in Europe for the summer. It allowed me to pick any program, so I was immediately drawn to NGSE. Ireland is incredibly beautiful with a rich culture, and I like how the Expedition focused on writing and photography.
