Here’s a post I had to share. Millsaps College is a small, private liberal arts school in Jackson, Mississippi who believe that studying abroad provides students with a powerful tool for understanding and appreciating our complex world. I met one of their students who is helping the women of Yaxhachen create contemporary applications for their embroidery. Brandon is an impressive young man with a great entrepreneurial spirit—one of many Millsaps students who are using their passion and enthusiasm to make a difference here in the Yucatan.
I enjoyed the observations of Allie and Mandi and even though I have travelled to many of these places, their post has ignited once again, my road trip fever and a longing to get to know the Yucatan just a little more deeply.
