"My scholarship made me conscious that my interaction with students should be more inclusive. I think I treated students more equally as a result of the experience. The students acted like kids anywhere, no matter whether they came from India, Pakistan, Bhutan, or Africa."

"India, where I chose to go, is wonderfully rich, and even if at times it was very busy and a little overwhelming, I think it made me more compassionate, more aware."

"People who want to break down barriers between cultures—those are the kinds of people who would get the most out of doing their student teaching internationally."
