Ella Pierce: Semester in South America, a traveling school.
Ella is an Interact Student and will be president of Interact this fall. She attended a semester in South America where the students lived with 5 teachers and 18 students 24/7, an all female group. No classroom settings but stayed in hostels and treks. They experienced a lot of cultural and governmental differences and participated in community service projects (building a fence, cleared a ditch on side of road, roadside trash pickups, working on a farm to harvest corn). The students trekked many miles lasting 3-6 days. A wonderful experience!
