Welcome / Bienvenido!

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” – Maya Angelou

Hello! Welcome to my blog for LACS 20: The Politics of Development. Here, I will synthesize and reflect on what I learn in class and connect this to larger issues of development. While I am not going on Dartmouth’s CCESP trip to Nicaragua this year, I do hope that I can learn as much as possible this term and be prepared to go to the trip next year. I truly learn to love about other cultures and believe that travel can teach things through direct exposure that cannot be achieved in a classroom.
