“I found a new home and a new family while volunteering at a pediatric orthopedic specialty hospital in San Pedro, Sula. The position combined my desire to learn Spanish with my dream to experience international medicine….I learned how to provide the best medicine available with limited resources, while generating a welcoming environment filled with hope and support in a time of crisis.”
