“ITHAS 2016 meant so much to me and I miss everyone and everything about it! I learned more than I can possibly put into words about tourism, different cultures and about myself! I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity and am beyond happy with my overall experience! The adventure was only a week but it felt like a month and the friendships and memories will last a lifetime!”

– Brooklyn McIntosh, BA Tourism and Environment
