Katherine Sturgill ’14 writes for Yucatan Living about her experiences working with ImpulSur, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping women of Southern Mérida, Mexico, create and sell their products. Sturgill is currently working there as an intern during CentreTerm, the College’s three-week January term.
