Testimonial: Isabel Peris, St. Olaf College

Isabel Peris

During a festival, a girl told me, "Tonight, Pune is the best city in the world!" And I couldn't agree more. During my time on the ACM India program, Pune really became like a second home. Being immersed in such a dynamic environment provided such amazing experiences. It was all the big and little things that added up: dancing in the streets during festivals, spending time with my host family, traveling all over India, weaving through cars and motorcycles when crossing the street, learning how to wrap a sari, riding in a rickshaw, conversing with wonderful people, tea time, and so much more! I'd go back in a heartbeat.
