My name is Jake Hoyt and when I first started traveling I knew it would be something that I would love to do for the rest of my life. So far I have gone to Ecuador and Costa Rica for service trips, and even though its hard work I learned to respect it, and gained a new outlook on life. Helping people has always been something that is very important to me, because if I can make someones day better, then it makes me feel as if I am making a difference in the world, even if it is in a small way. Joining Global Studies is a very good way to accomplish that goal, and I can't wait to see my opportunities skyrocket as I progress in the program.
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest."
