United States > > > with Silvia in Turkey

I wanted to immerse myself in a foreign culture. I am a huge fan of the arts and found VAWAA at the perfect time. I wanted to learn a new art form while also understanding its link to a particular culture. Ebru painting in Istanbul with Silvia did just that! 

I feel like I have a great understanding of Turkish culture through both the arts and living with a Turkish family. This experience will help me in the future by broadening my horizons in both travel and the arts.
