YES Abroad Macedonia 2015-2016 students ended their 10-month stay in Macedonia this weekend and arrived in the United States on Monday, June 13. Alumni Marina Godinez, Brendan Schultz, Charlie Bordeon, and Maxwell Myers touched down on Monday and then made their way to Washington, D.C. for a debrief orientation.
The four spent Tuesday at the Department of State and the Macedonian Embassy discussing their experiences in Macedonia and talking about everything from Macedonian geography to Macedonian food. They then presented their capstone project as a group and talked more about their time abroad.
While in the capital, they met with YES Abroad Bosnia and Herzegovina 2015-2016 alumni to share their experiences and tour the city. The group saw the White House and the Washington Monument as well as other attractions in the area.
The alumni then went to the airport to board separate planes to fly to their hometowns and reunite with their families and friends.
