Girlfriends are good for the soul.

One of the best parts of my experience abroad so far has been the opportunity to make friends from all over the world. This photo represents international volunteers from Malaysia, New Zealand, United States (myself), and Mexico.

It’s been amazing to connect with women from all over the world with all different backgrounds.

Despite the fact that we come from vastly different cultures, I have formed friendships through common experiences and made memories that I am certain will stand the test of time.

Today marks the last one of my friends pictured here leaving Cambodia. At the moment I’m a bit sad and I have an odd feeling of being the lone ranger but I am so grateful for the good conversation, laughs and numerous happy hours I got to spend with these lovely ladies.
