Developing the ability to effectively engage across cultures will enable you to: better understand yourself and what has shaped you, become more aware of how your attitudes and behaviors affect those around you, and build relationships based on trust, respect, and acceptance.

This can benefit you in all aspects of your life, every single day, no matter where you are.

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.
