ECUADOR Guayaquil
I loved my experience. Ecuador was amazing. The classes and internship helped me realize that international affairs is a career I will find most rewarding. Everyone at KEI helped me come closer to achieving my future goals. Claudia (KEI Onsite Director) was wonderful, like a mom. She made me feel at home. If anything were to happen, I had someone to call for assistance.
