 Grace Gibbons in Kiribati
"I went to Kiribati with ACU to complete my EDFX204 unit. The experience was probably the best of my life so far! Kiribati is an incredibly beautiful island nation, filled with gorgeous people and rich culture. It is not the kind of place that everyone is lucky enough to visit in their lives. The hospitality, generosity and fun of the I-Kiribati people defined our entire trip. Far beyond simply an educational experience, going to Kiribati will feed your soul and change your life."
