“I was not sure what to expect from VOICES. However, the retreat proved to be much more than what I was hoping for. It was a combination of the right time, the right place, and the right people. Despite my skepticism, I’ve come to realize this mixture can truly make a difference in your mentality approaching your daily life. Having the ability to be vulnerable with others and open up in a way that I can’t normally gave me an opportunity to think about who I am internally and how I act when I present myself around others. The VOICES retreat truly provides a space for the “care for the whole person” that drew me to Georgetown in the first place.”
