Hi everyone! My name is Ally Carlos!! I studied traditional medicine and healthcare practices in India through a non-UF program called School for International Training (SIT) as a rising junior in Summer 2022. As scary as it was to travel across the world by myself for the first time, I wouldn't trade my study abroad experience for anything in the world. The renewed perspective that I gained whilst abroad allowed me to change how I perceive medicine and how it is practiced. On top of this, I got to immerse myself into a completely different culture from my own and get to know its people, customs, and traditions. I can confidently say that my study abroad experience was one of the best experiences I have had throughout my college career thus far, and I love getting to rave about it whenever I get the chance to!!
