  • Learn about ideas, values, norms, experiences, and behaviors that are different from your own

  • Interact more effectively and respectfully with people who do not share your beliefs, customs, values, and attitudes.

  • Cultivate and build meaningful relationships with people who have different life experiences

  • Assume the best about people and limit your tendencies to judge or stereotype difference

  • Strengthen your ability to cope with and recover from challenging emotional experiences

Lena is one of the most thoughtful, compassionate, and insightful people I know. She is attuned to what connects us all; her deep sense of empathy transcends nationality, gender, and identity. This gives her the ability to facilitate interpersonal dialogue and bring self-awareness to our own roadblocks that keep us from seeing, understanding, and connecting to our universal humanity. Developing these skills was the focus of my first solo trip. Lena helped me shape my experience into more than pretty pictures or stamps in my passport — we selected cities where I could intentionally connect with others and pursue experiences in line with the goals we’d identified. She supported me in addressing the barriers that kept me from truthfully engaging with new people and places and empowered me to have the courage to continue my independent travel since.
