What was your most meaningful service experience or extracurricular activity in college and why?

I volunteered in a brigade to Panama and Nicaragua, for about 2 weeks in each country where we provided medical, dental and public health services. During this time, I rotated in various stations such as triage, consultation, pharmacy, workshops and building latrines. This opportunity gave me insight on how different health care systems operate around the world.
