“My PACE activity in India was a life-changing experience for me. It taught me to change my perspective about a lot of things, and to really value the opportunities that I have been given. Being in India made me challenge myself in ways that I never would have otherwise. I learnt that social inclusion and ethics are fundamentally important when internationally communicating. I have learnt skills that I most certainly will use for the rest of my life.”– PACE alumna, Jessica Sachse
