I met Alex Montoya in December of 2014 at The White House Travel Blogger Summit on Study Abroad and Global Citizenship. He was the only student we heard from at the event. All being participants of study abroad and travel programs ourselves, this was okay but the reason was obvious: He was a recipient of the Gilman Scholarship, which helps connect underserved populations that might not have the opportunity to afford or find programs to study abroad with the ability to actually go and participate in internships and learning abroad.
With encouragement from a professor, Alex found the guidance to discover the opportunities out there to study abroad, what it means to study abroad, and how to make it happen. In this episode, we explore his story, the transformation, and how it felt to be speaking on stage, at The White House, with the biggest names in travel and government.
