I participated in Builders Beyond Borders when I was in High School, I am now an Environmental Engineer who has spent a significant amount of time researching and working in the water and energy sector in low and middle income countries. Builders Beyond Borders both provided me with opportunities most only experience in their adult life (if at all) and also shaped my current career goals nearly a decade later. The adventures I had in B3 directly impacted lives of others at home and abroad, taught me about cultural awareness and communication, and taught me about myself. Today, Builders is only doing more to positively impact this world and the people on it not just in the immediate future but also in the long term. It is a very special organization that helps make this world a better place.
