The End: A Trip of a Lifetime

And just as quickly as it came, the trip is over. The past two weeks have been an experience like no other. I have fallen in love the the city of Buenos Aires and the people of Argentina. I had such a wonderful Plus3 experience and encourage any incoming freshman to join in on the…

In Summary…

Two weeks has flown by. I’m honestly pretty exhausted, but every day was worth it. I met a bunch of great people, I learned so much about healthcare and the financing of it, and I experienced different people and places than I’m used to. The mornings and early afternoons were packed with site visits and…

Don’t Cry For Me Argentina

After returning home, I am glad to see my friends and family, but I also miss being in Argentina. The trip was a once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget. The trip was packed with fun activities and plenty of things that I learned about not only healthcare in Argentina but also…

Back to the States

Two weeks later and I am back home in the US! I am both happy and sad to have left Buenos Aires…I was glad to be able to relax and sleep in my own bed, but upset that such an amazing journey has come to an end. I learned so much in my two weeks…

The Final Chapter

Two weeks filled with: learning about the Argentine health system, eating tons of empanadas, making new friends, living a once in a lifetime experience. In the two weeks that I was in Argentina I was able to experience an entire new culture that I was emerging myself into head first. The main focus of our…

That’s a Wrap!

Plus3 Argentina: the finale. Two weeks flew by, but the lessons I learned and the knowledge I gained from this trip will stay with me no matter how far I travel from Buenos Aires.

Don’t Cry for me Argentina

Now that I am finally home for the summer, I have had some time to reflect on the past two weeks. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to study abroad, as it was something I have always wanted to do. Before I begin, I just want to thank my parents for letting…

Gracias Buenos Aires!

After being home for 24 hours, I have to say I really miss being in Argentina. Overall, I think this trip was a once in a lifetime experience and I am so grateful I was able to experience it as well as cross South America off of my bucket list. Between the amazing food, the…

Final Blog!!

As I got in the car with my parents to start my venture home, they started with the obvious question which was, “what were your favorite parts of the trip?”. For me this was easy to answer at first because so many moments came to mind, but also hard because I couldn’t choose just a…

Gracias Argentina

Although I went into the trip with a couple of concerns, I loved being in Buenos Aires. I haven’t been out of the country that many times, but I imagine it’s one of the coolest places that I’ll ever see. I am extremely glad that I decided to go on the trip and that my…

Goodbye :(

Adios Argentina

Tonight is the first night in my own bed after spending two weeks in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and it is a very bittersweet feeling.

Mi Amiga, Argentina

    Two weeks in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina with about 20 other business and nursing students exploring the healthcare industry can change a person. Between the rich meals, intensive site visits, interesting guest lectures, fascinating museum visits, and other cultural activities, I felt I gained so much valuable experience that I will…

A trip to remember

This is not only one of the best trips in my life because it was my first time in latin America. This trip was phenomenal for the people, the knowledge, and culture, and of course, the food too. No matter how this blog is written, to me, it will always seemed rushed, just because some…

As the journey concludes, I can only thank everyone who made the trip possible, and be grateful for the opportunity of a lifetime. Over the past two weeks in Argentina, there were many highs and some lows. However, overall I can only look at the entire trip as a whole in a positive light. Everyday…

A legacy

It would only be proper for us to learn about the history of Argentina during these two weeks that we spent in this beautiful country. So, that is exactly what we did. After a cultural lecture about the history of Argentina that we had a couple of days ago, we acquired some crucial information about…

Chapter 14: Eva Perón and the Public Health System

In my last blog post I spoke briefly about our trip to the Evita Perón museum, as well as my trip to the public. As I mentioned previously, Eva Perón’s role as the first lady stretched far beyond that as her involvement improved the lives of many people those in need and women’s lives as…
