Students who participate in Pepperdine University's international programs are in for the ride of their lives. Usually they are challenged more, stretched more, changed more than any year of their short lives up until that point. The stories students tell when they return home are tales of skydiving, hitchhiking, train hopping and cliff jumping. But that's just what happens on the weekends.
The students don't always talk about what happens between Monday and Thursday every week. That's school, life, making decisions, facing adulthood, and dealing with the junk life throws at you. That's the story this video needed to tell.
I invited a handful of students, fresh from their year abroad, to sit down with me on a Saturday morning, and respond to one simple question, "How did you grow?"
This is what they said.
Like this? I love shooting videos! They're like pictures, only moving! Check out more videos I've made here.
