Why I Maximo Nivel

This has been one of the best experiences of my life! I was given the opportunity to travel AND help people at the same time. I was able to step out of my comfort zone and be immersed into a completely new culture. I’ve met so many different people from different places that are all adventurous, spontaneous and down to earth, it has been refreshing. This has been a life changing experience that I will never forget. It has taught me a lot about myself and the world!
