Meredith - RY Alba Program
Copywriter
“THIS CITY WILL SURPRISE + DELIGHT YOU! My friends + family were not super stoked on Colombia, and I think I let some of that get in my head before arriving (the history & former reputation). But this is one of the COOLEST places I've ever been, and I already can't wait to come back.”
Saunak - RY Sisu Program
Creative Director
“This was a great month overall. Loved this city and the experience was flawless. You will fall in love with this place before you even know it.   Prepare to be amazed!”
Catrina - RY Bolivar Program
Marketing Consultant
“I enjoyed learning about coffee farming, taking salsa lessons, my spanish lessons, paragliding, hiking and swimming in waterfalls, ziplining across mountains, riding on top of a van through incredible scenery, jumping off the bridge into the water, befriending awesome locals, bonding with my fellow remotes, all while still managing to get work done.”
Kelly - RY Alba Program
Graphic Designer
“AMAZING!!! All of the RY staff in my life have been so great, friendly and beyond helpful. I have only started to expand my horizons and perspective! I have learned so much in one month from my fellow remotes. I have set goals higher than I thought I could because of this amazing community!”
Kelsey- RY Alba Program
Marketing Director
“I took a massive step outside my comfort zone. I'm a really introverted person, and meeting all the different, amazing people in the group gave me even more confidence to speak my truth and be 100% myself.”
Chimdi - RY Curie Program
Director
“RY is like mainlining 10 years of adventure and personal growth. What I learned about myself and about the world has fundamentally reshaped my world view. By highlighting my own and other diverse perspectives in my videography, I am hopefully helping more people see themselves as capable of international travel.”
