Review for Vida Volunteer, Arlington, VA, USA
Hi! My name is Madeline Brown, and I just completed my third medical mission trip with Vida. I was given the opportunity to coordinate the past 2 trips for our Vida club at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, and I believe these experiences were the highlight of my college years. I can say with confidence that Vida has changed my life in so many meaningful ways—my perspective, goals, career path, and most importantly, Vida has helped to shape the person I strive to become. These trips have taught me valuable medical and clinical skills, respect for the beautiful Guatemalan and Mayan cultures, Spanish ~fluency, and most of all, Vida has motivated me to share my abundance with others.
I highly recommend traveling and learning with Vida—I know I will be coming back someday as a medical student and future physician. Thank you, Vida, for all that you have given to me and to our UWL students. We are so grateful! (2018 trip's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WM-YikhsT9c&t=22s )
