​​​​​​​Over a period of two days we explored several towns in Quindío, Colombia to understand the history of coffee and its relationship to the people, their identity, the conflict in Colombia, and the vast inequality gap that exists here. As a coffee consumer have you ever considered the story behind your daily morning drink? It’s as sobering as it is fascinating.

Where would you expect to find the most breathtaking collection of street art in the world? Where would you find walls, streets, and stairs exploding in a vibrant array of colors representing the rich cultural history of a neighborhood? The answer might not be what you expect: The neighborhood is in Medellín, Colombia and is called “Comuna 13.” During the height of the drug wars here in the 80’s and 90’s, Comuna 13 was the most notorious neighborhood in Medellín, which was the most dangerous city in the world at the time. So how in the world did our study abroad group from Moravian College end up here?

Like most high school seniors, I had really no clue what I wanted to do after graduating. Yes, I wanted to go to school, but did I want to go to school because everyone else was and I have been told since day one that college is what gets you a successful life? As if high school wasn’t stressful enough for me, which was filled with 3 sports, AP and honor classes, having a job, and trying to manage a social life.  To make things worse, there were so many options to narrow down when choosing a college.

Luckily, I had an awesome high school guidance counselor who knew how to help deal with my anxiety. Knowing that I was looking for a small school not far from home, he encouraged me to attend an info session about Moravian College, and the Admissions counselor talked up Moravian so much that I decided I would apply.

In April of 2104, I made the 2-hour drive with my mom to visit Moravian College. It was small, cozy, and not in the middle of nowhere! I sat in Dr. Salter’s class, and I felt like this was my place.  During our Open House visit, my mom saw me eyeing the Army ROTC table but not making the move so she dragged me over to talk to them. My senior year of high school, I was also talking to military recruiters because I had no clue how I would pay for school, since at the time I wanted to be a doctor. Plus, there was always something about the military that grabbed my attention.
