Ransom Everglades Site Director, Breakthrough Miami

"Education has less to do with ivory towers and impressive faculty as it has more to do with the books we read and the places we travel. Travel challenges personal truths, shapes our understanding of the world, our place in it, all while giving credence to the possibility of 'other.' Such reflection is necessary in the development of global citizenry. The Nyah Project meets this need in contemporary education."
