Paraguay Student Reflection: Melissa Neufer

Paraguay Student Reflection: Melissa NeuferMiami University graduate Melissa Neufer MAT ‘22 (at right) shares her experiences and memories of the 2022 Earth Expeditions: Paraguay course in “Reflection.” 

I will never forget this trip. My travel anxiety and nervousness has improved.  I can go anywhere and know it will be what it will be.  I am determined to get back to Paraguay to visit those silly Capuchin in San Rafael - but this time, I am ready for whatever comes along with that plan.” 

Neufer earned a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in the biological sciences from Miami through Project Dragonfly‘s Global Field Program while working as a high school biology teacher in Santa Rosa, California.
