Adiós GSL Puerto Rico!

My global service-learning experience to declare the least has been nothing short of spontaneous, a truly whirlwind experience. Never would I ever have anticipated having completed our project with Caras in a remote location under complete lockdown amid a worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.

Transitioning GSL Puerto Rico to Zoom University amidst COVID-19
