I learned and experienced what I thought was nearly impossible for me to experience in life. I overcame my fears—for instance, I’m terrified of fish and of sea critters, but here I had to get in the water with the critters. And the most terrifying, amazing, thought-I-was-near-death experience I did have was actually last night. I went out on a night hike. If I didn’t have the TAs [teaching assistants], I don’t think I would have made it. I was able to go to Tangier Island and learn about their lifestyle.
There are just so many things I experienced in the last four days that I don’t have enough space to tell it all.
