Helen Heyer Walsh - University of Minnesota

Thank you so much for everything. You made us feel SVYM like a second home! I am so blessed and grateful to have had this opportunity with you all and I’m so so so sad to leave. Thank you!!! India is such a beautiful place filled with amazing people. The culture is so rich and I can’t wait to tell people back home about how amazing it is. I cannot wait to come back! I’m going to miss India very very much.

Dawson Cooper - University of Minnesota

It's hard to encapsulate my impressions of India without writing many pages - to keep it short my stay has been fantastic and I would love to come back to explore more of the country. The people, culture, food, and scenery has been excellent and I would not change many things about my experience here.

Lillian Chen - University of Minnesota

India is so rich in culture, diversity, and very welcoming. I hope to tell people back at home about my experience here. Even though I faced challenges and experience culture shock, overall, I have a good impression about India and it's history.

Emma Norton

I feel very grateful to have had the opportunity to experience a little bit of Indian culture and to have learned about a non-Western country’s perspective on health!

I think that working hard and trying my best to understand expectations in a calm, direct way is a big take away. I would like to pursue a major in psychology along with my global health major now.

Emma Sillman

Some of my most memorable experiences include the mobile health unit and having tea in a tea stall after going to a temple with community health workers and visiting a village.
